In today’s episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast we talk to Anna Pippus about the progress being made with the food guide and how it incorporates a more plant-based approach. Anna has been following along and even consulting on the changes happening right now in Canada with regards to the Canadian Food Guide and the Guiding Principles. She fills us in on how these changes are taking place, how it is different from other countries and where the pushback is coming from. She helps clear up the cyber rumors and sets us straight letting us know for sure if the dairy food group is actually going to be eliminated.
We spend some time talking about the connotation for adults and children when foods are called “alternative” and what food taxes are really for. We think you’ll be pleasantly surprised with some of the advancements you hear about in this episode so share it with your friends near and wide.
