The new Making Healthier Choices Act for Ontario will help families make healthier food choices by requiring some restaurants and grocery stores to provide calorie information on their menus. Dietitian with our local health unit, Kimberly Leadbeater says having this information readily available is a good first step.

Leadbeater says the next thing dietitians would like to see is food services provide their sodium count. She says making healthy choices isn’t easy and the government can play a huge role in providing supportive environments to help make healthy choices.
