Description:
Consuming approximately 23 almonds per day (about a handful) is recommended to
health professionals as advice to give clients/patients as this amount has shown to help
individuals achieve an adequate intake of essential nutrients, stave off hunger and
maintain heart health.
A one-ounce serving of almonds (about 23 almonds) is an excellent source of vitamin E,
magnesium and manganese, and a good source of fiber, copper, riboflavin, and
phosphorus. Not to mention, every ounce has 6 grams of protein, and 12 grams of hearthealthy unsaturated fats.
Almonds are one of the leading food sources of alpha-tocopherol vitamin E. Alphatocopherol is the kind of vitamin E the human body absorbs best.

Description:
Apples are crunchy, juicy and tasty, loaded with nutrients and minerals as well as fiber to
satisfy what your body needs. It is also a fruit that is rich in quercetin, an antioxidant that
that is a natural anti-histamine and anti-inflammatory. It is found in the peels of apples as
well as red onions and has been isolated and sold as a dietary supplement.
Nutritional Assessment:
One medium apple counts for 1 serving from the vegetable and fruit group in the
Canadian food guide.
Alert:
Make sure you wash apples before consumption with running water- do not use soaps or
detergents unless otherwise specified.
Other Nutritional Information:
• There is archaeological evidence to show that humans have been eating apples since
6500 BC.
• Apples come in a wide range of sizes. Some are only slightly larger than a cherry while
the larger varieties can grow to be the size of a grapefruit.
• Apples vary in taste almost as much as grapes. Apples can have an aftertaste of citrus,
pears, cinnamon, strawberries, coconut, cloves, pineapple or grapes.
• On average, apple contains more antioxidants, which can help to prevent cancer, than a
large 1,500 mg dose of vitamin C. They also contain a combination of phytochemicals
which are thought to assist antioxidant activity and anti cancer activity. Antioxidants
fight the activities of particles known as free radicals which can cause damage to cells.
Free radicals are thought to be a contributory factor to the development of conditions
such as some forms of cancer. They are also thought to contribute to the aging process.
• As well as being full of goodness, apples contain no sodium, no fat and no cholesterol.
• Apples contain phytonutrients which are antioxidants and help to combat the effects of
bad LDL cholesterol. LDL cholesterol is bad cholesterol, and preventing the effects of it
will help prevent heart disease.
• Apples contain a substance called pectin, which is a soluble fiber that helps with the
digestive process.
• Your daily apple contains the same amount of dietary fiber as a bowl of breakfast bran
cereal.
• Apples contain complex carbohydrates which give you a more sustained energy boost
than foods that are highly processed, or foods that are high in sugar.
• Research has shown that people who eat an apple a day tend to breathe more easily
because of the positive effects that the nutrients within apples have on lung function.
• Apples can be yellow, green, red or a combination of theses colors. Apples can also
change color in a similar way to metal rusting. The flesh of the apple reacts with oxygen
and will eventually turn brown after prolonged exposure to the air.
• Apples can rust. The flesh of the apple contains a chemical that reacts with oxygen just
like metal does and it will turn brown when exposed to the air. However, if you store
apples carefully at a cool temperature, they will remain fresh for about a year. Apples
tend to ripen 6 to 10 times faster if they are left at room temperature than if they were
stored in a refrigerator. The best temperature to store apples at is between 35 and 40
degrees Celsius with a relative humidity of between 80 and 90%.
• Apples contain an essential trace element called boron. Boron helps with bone density
and can therefore help to prevent or to decrease the effects of osteoporosis.

Description:
These snacks are a perfect treat when you want something sweet. They are tasty, fruit
based desserts that are low in calories making them delicious without the same aftermath
as a slice of cheese cake! They are also great for people who have difficulty swallowing
(due to physical impairments or temporary illness) and are also enjoying when chilled on
hot days (in place of an ice cream). Another great thing about these snacks is that you can
add fruit, dried fruit or fiber cereal to make them more filling. They are also a source of
fiber (with 2 grams per serving). All of this information makes them a nutritionally
beneficial snack to the daily diet.

Description:
Babybel cheese is an Edam cheese. Edam cheese is a dutch cheese characterized by a
slighty salty or nutty flavor. It generally has a mild taste and ages well. It is a perfect
snack as it can travel with you safely, do to the fact that it does not spoil easily.
Nutritional Assessment:
The calcium that is within the cheese is a significant amount, making it a great way to
meet your daily calcium requirements! Calcium is essential to the body as it helps
maintain bone density. The vitamin A helps to maintain vision and the vitamin B12
provides energy.
Sadly, milk products are too often replaced by unhealthy snacks—like candy, chocolate
bars, and soft drinks—in the diets of both children and adults. Yet milk is vital to
maintaining our health and energy. That’s what makes Mini Babybel in a small, easy to
take package makes the perfect snack!

Bananas are energizing snacks that come in their very own package, making them clean
to eat anywhere.
They are low in calories, fat, sodium and high in soluble fibre- the type that can help
lower cholesterol. There is a significant amount of potassium and magnesium making it a
perfect snack for an athlete or people who suffer from diarrhea or high blood pressure.
Potassium - an important mineral in maintaining normal blood pressure, as well as
protecting against certain heart problems such as heart disease and stroke.
Vitamin B6 - Most amino acids (the building blocks of protein) require a sufficient
amount of B6 in order to synthesize protein. As well, since most molecules require this
B-vitamin in their production, B6 is considered an essential part in the production of
almost all new cells in the body. Vitamin B6 also helps in processing carbohydrates
(sugars and starch). Carb processing plays a large part in physical performance, so having
enough of this important vitamin is critical to reaching your goals.
Vitamin C - is a powerful antioxidant that helps to boost the immune system, protect
against cancer, regulate blood sugar, protect your skin from free radical damage, and
plays a part in the growth and repair of body tissue.
Manganese – a mineral that acts as a powerful antioxidant, playing a key role in a variety
of processes, such as regulating blood sugar levels, activating enzymes responsible for
digestion and utilization of key nutrients, breaking down fats and cholesterol and in the
production of energy.
Dietary Fibre - It is a good source of both soluble fiber, which offer a host of benefits,
such as regulating blood sugar levels, helping to lower cholesterol and helping to protect
against heart disease
Depression – Tryptophan in bananas, which is converted into neurotransmitter serotonin,
can help a person feel better as serotonin helps to make a person relax, feel happier and
improve mood.
Alert: Bananas that have brown spots are richer in vitamins and minerals

Description:
Made with natural ingredients, no artificial flavors, preservatives or colors, free of fat and
cholesterol and is a source of fiber. Cranberries are naturally packed with unique and
powerful nutrients called proanthocyanidins (PAC) which research suggests helps
prevent harmful bacteria from sticking inside the body. Cranberry PAC’s attach to certain
bacteria, allowing for bacteria to be easily and harmlessly flushed from the body.
The antioxidants found in cranberries may help the body defend itself against free radical
damage. In fact, laboratory studies show that cranberries can inhibit oxidation of lowdensity cholesterol, which is thought to be one way cholesterol becomes sticky, allowing
it to attach to the blood vessel wall (Wilson, T, 1998).
Cranberries are used in the ‘Healthy Workplace Mix’, but can be sold separately so that
consumers can add them to cereal, yogurt, salads or snack on them alone! They are sweet
so they can be used to add a sweet flavor to baked goods or even cooked dishes.
Nutritional Assessment
1/3 cup of craisins provides the same urinary health benefits as 1 cup of cranberry
cocktail. A ¼ cup serving of crasins is equivalent to one serving of fruit based on Eating
Well with Canada’s Food Guide.
Alert: These are nut-free products! They are also a health check product (heart&stroke
foundation).

Nutritional Assessment
Dietary Fiber is the part of plant foods that your body doesn’t digest. Fiber, therefore,
helps with regularity and has been shown to have other health benefits, as well. There are
two types of dietary fiber used in the labeling of food products – both are important for
good health.
Soluble fiber dissolves in water and is found in foods like beans and other legumes,
fruits, and oat products (e.g. Oatmeal, Cheerios). Can help lower cholesterol levels, and
therefore can help reduce the risk of heart disease.
Insoluble fiber: aka “gut-healthy fiber as one of its roles is supporting regularity. It does
not dissolve in water and can be found in whole grain products (e.g. whole wheat bread,
ready to eat cereals made with whole grain, such as Fiber One cereals), and vegetables.
Alert: The bars contain peanuts, milk, soy and wheat ingredients as well as traces of
almond and sunflower

Description:
Fruit to Go are great products for quick and healthy snacking. While the better choice of
fruit would be an apple, orange or banana, fruit to go does have an exceptional advantage.
This fruit product does not go bad as there is no ripening process.
The fruit to go snacks contain 1 gram of fiber each, and are low in calories. No added
sugar or artificial coloring and flavors are in these products. They also come in a variety
of flavors so you will not become bored of the taste.
Fruits contain antioxidants. Antioxidants help protect our body's cells from damage,
which ultimately helps us live healthier, more active lives. Naturally occurring processes
like digestion and physical activity, as well as exposure to such things as pollution,
chemicals, smoke and radiation from the sun, cause the formation of 'free radicals' within
our bodies. These free radicals damage body tissue through a process known as
oxidation.

Description:
A 40 gram serving of raisins is equal to one serving of fruit from Eating Well with
Canada’s food guide.
Raisins are sweet in taste, always ready-to-eat, don’t spoil, bruise or require refrigeration,
are 100% natural and you can take them anywhere!
Raisins are one of the richest sources of the mineral Boron, which is often overlooked as
an important mineral in the body. Boron is a trace mineral that converts estrogen and
vitamin D into their most active forms. Estrogen levels drop after menopause causing a
biochemical effect in the body that breaks down bone mass. Studies have shown that
boron may protect against osteoporosis and reproduces many of the same effects as
estrogen therapy in postmenopausal women.
Raisins can easily be added to a variety of dishes and recipes as well as snacked on alone.

This is a light lunch that is great for when time becomes too short to make and take a tuna
sandwich to the job. Tuna is a good source of lean protein and canned tuna is convenient
and an affordable way to include fish in your diet. Albacore tuna is farmed off the waters
of British Columbia. This tuna is high in omega 3 fatty acids. They are also high in
selenium, which is a mineral the body requires, and is lacking in the soils due to depletion
from modern agricultural practices.
Ingredients (Tuna in mayo):
White tuna, reduced fat mayonnaise (water, vinegar, sugar, vegetable oil, egg yolk
powder, egg white powder), modified tapioca starch, coloring agent, guar gum, xanthan
gum.
Ingredients (Crackers):
Wheat flour, soybean oil, water, sugar, salt, sodium carbonate, ammonia bicarbonate

Nutritional Analysis:
Calcium: According to Health Canada, "calcium favours the growth and maintenance of
healthy bones and teeth". Plus, it also promotes blood clotting, which is essential for
healing wounds, aids nervous system function, stabilizes the heartbeat by regulating
blood pressure and plays a leading role in muscle contraction and relaxation. (Ref: A
Course on Natural Products, H. Baribeau, M.Sc. Dt.P., Fall, 2000)
Vitamin A: According to Health Canada, "vitamin A contributes to the healthy
development of bones and teeth, improves night vision, and helps maintain skin and
mucous tissue." Vitamin A also helps fight infection, boosts the immune system,
improves acne and psoriasis, and is essential to reproduction.
Vitamin D: According to Health Canada "vitamin D plays an important role in the
development and maintenance of healthy teeth and bones, and improves the absorption
and use of calcium and phosphorus." Vitamin D is also vital to proper growth, increases
calcium and phosphorus levels in the blood, and contributes to proper cell function.
Vitamin B2: According to Health Canada, "vitamin B plays a role in energy metabolism
and in tissue formation." It contributes to the absorption of carbohydrates, fats and
proteins.
Vitamin B12: According to Health Canada, "vitamin B12 contributes to the formation of
red blood cells." Plus, it is essential for maintaining a healthy nervous system, promotes
bone-cell activity, and supports the absorption of folic acid.
Pantothenic acid (B5): According to health Canada, "vitamin B5 plays a role in energy
metabolism and in tissue formation." It helps to synthesize, or metabolize, cholesterol and
fats, and stimulates growth.
Phosphorus: According to Health Canada, "phosphorus plays a role in the development
and maintenance of healthy bones and teeth."
Magnesium: According to Health Canada, "magnesium plays a role in energy
metabolism, in tissue formation and in bone development." Plus, it is essential to the
proper function of over 300 bodily enzymes, assists in the absorption of proteins,
promotes blood clotting and the expansion and contraction of muscles and supports a
regular heartbeat.
