Meal Planning

Healthy eating is part of a healthy lifestyle. Meal planning is a great way to help you develop healthy eating habits. Meal planning is about getting organized, planning meals ahead of time, making a grocery list, going shopping and cooking!

Planning meals using Canada’s Food Guide helps you:

  • get all the food and nutrients  you need;
  • eat a variety of foods throughout the day and the week;
  • save time and money because  you buy only what you need and don’t need to go to the grocery store  as often; and
  • reduce the last minute stress of deciding what’s for dinner.
Plan for three meals a day with one to three snacks. To make a well balanced meal, include at least one food from each of the four food groups of Canada’s Food Guide.
