Happy New Year!

For my first post of 2008 I would like to share some highlights from the past year, and let you know what's percolating for this year. 2007 was a productive adventurous year for me, and for pattycake.ca.

Revised: Canada's Food Guide

Canada's Food Guide
Canada's Food Guide (2007)

The Canadian government has just released (on February 5, 2007) a revised version of the Canada's Food Guide.

This guide was first published in 1942 (during WW2) to inform Canadians on how to eat a healthy balanced diet. There have been several revisions of this guide, the last version was released in 1992.

Upon first glance, I think it's pretty good. It provides eating suggestions based on sex, age, and physical activity level. It also states that physical activity is important for healthy living, and provides some guidelines. It's friendly, colourful, and displays the foods in a rainbow - rather than a hierarchical pyramid. It includes "ethnic" foods like kefir and bok choy...

Interesting :-)

Bonne Année!
¡Feliz Año Nuevo!
