Thank you to everyone who participated in our November Good Food Challenge. The Good Food Challenge is an annual personal challenge to think and learn more about food as a way to eating better. "Food and food issues have become complicated, so it can be overwhelming to make good food choices." says FSN Executive Director Kristie Jameson. "With the Good Food Challenge the idea is for people to take the time to think about food, talk to each other, and to set their own goals." "With that kind of thought put toward food, it can be easier to make better choices." You can read the daily conversation cards at www.goodfoodchallenge.ca.
