The revised eligibility list has a greater focus on nutrition and excludes certain foods based on criteria such as fat, sugar, sodium, or low nutrient content. To promote the consumption of nutrient-rich foods (e.g. fruits, vegetables, milk, eggs), eligible foods will be separated into two categories: the most nutritious foods and other nutritious foods. The most nutritious foods will receive a higher subsidy. The revised eligibility list will better reflect key Health Canada nutrition policies such as Eating Well with Canada’s Food Guide and Eating Well with Canada’s Food Guide – First Nations, Inuit and M├ętis, which promote a pattern of healthy eating over a lifetime.
