Canada's first food guide was introduced in 1942 to provide guidance to Canadians on proper nutrition during a period of time when wartime rations were common. The 1942 version was called the Official Food Rules. In 1944 the guide was revised and renamed Canada's Food Rules. In 1962, the guidelines were revised and renamed to Canada's Food Guide. In 1992 the named evolved to Canada's Food Guide to Healthy Eating and in 2007 it evolved to Eating Well with Canada's Food Guide. Canada's Food Guide was updated and released to the general public in January 2019. Major changes included removing the Meat & Alternative Section as well as the Dairy & Alternatives Section. Servings/Portions were also removed.
