Healthy foods come in all shapes and sizes and have different amounts of calories and nutrients. Because of this, Eating Well with Canada’s Food Guide recommends different serving sizes for different kinds of foods.
The Food Guide uses the term “Food Guide serving” to describe appropriate serving sizes for different foods from each of the four food groups. Being familiar with the sizes of Food Guide Servings can help you understand how much you need to eat each day.
