A Dietitian's review of the new Canada's Food Guide

Finally - the new Canada's Food Guide has been released by Health Canada! There are a lot of positive changes to the new guidelines. The four food groups are gone. No more meat and alternatives or dairy group. They've been replaced with a more visual plate-style of half fruits and veggies, one quarter whole grains and one quarter protein foods.
