Healthy Eating

A healthy lifestyle includes the promotion of health eating and active living.   Healthy eating means eating a variety of foods traditional to the north, or making healthy choices from other sources.

The NWT Food Guide and Canada's Food Guide to Healthy Eating offers simple guidelines for healthy eating.
