Good, healthy food is key to a healthy, happy life. But millions of Canadians do not have the right access, or information to get the healthy food they need.

The Canadian government is working hard on a Healthy Eating Strategy. This strategy will help millions of Canadians make healthy choices about what they eat – in a country where up to 66,000 people die every year from conditions linked to excess weight, and nearly two-thirds of adults and one-third of children are obese or overweight.

Tweet Prime Minister Trudeau now to show your support for the Healthy Eating Strategy.

Ask him to include all of the vital ingredients!

Trudeau’s Healthy Eating Strategy is shaping up well. Global Citizen and the Jamie Oliver Foundation are calling on the Canadian government to make sure the strategy includes all the vital ingredients (such as food labelling laws and a sugary drinks levy), and that it is fully implemented, to secure a healthy future for Canada’s children.
