ADVICE FOR CHILDREN
• Young children need to eat small amounts of food throughout the day.
• Nutritious foods that contain fat do not need to be restricted.
•
These foods are a concentrated source of calories that are needed for growth.
• Parents and caregivers are role models.
STAY ACTIVE
• Encourage children to exercise at least 60 minutes per day
• This can be spread through out the day
BUY LOCAL
• When choosing foods from the 4 food groups, think about buying food
produced here in Nova Scotia or the Maritimes.
• Locally produced foods are often fresher. They are better for the environment
because they don’t travel far to market and have less packaging.
• When you buy locally produced foods, you support local farmers and fishers.
