The Health Check program was created by the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada in consultation with a group of experts from the fields of nutrition, education, medicine, communication and industry and with consultation of the federal government via Health Canada and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency.
Health Check is a way of indentifying foods that can fit into a healthy diet based on Canada's Food Guide. Every food product and menu item in the Health Check program must earn the right to display the Health Check symbol by meeting specific nutrient standards based on Canada's Food Guide.
