Help fix Heart and Stroke’s Health Check Program

by Kapil Khatter on December 18, 2012

Health Check is in need of a makeover. The program needs to promote fresh fruit and vegetables, rather than packaged and processed food. It needs to encourage cooking at home from scratch rather than eating at restaurants, especially fast food restaurants. It needs to stop giving check marks to the too salty and the too sweet.

“Health Check doesn’t help … its nutritional criteria are so weak and the program so poorly executed that rather than help consumers, it hinders healthy choices.” – Dr. Yoni Freedhoff, obesity expert and nutritional watchdog.

Click here to email the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada’s staff, board and advisors and ask them to fix Health Check. It’ll only take a sec (customizing the email a little is encouraged though).
