Healthy Eating

Skipping meals, not eating healthy food or not drinking enough water, can lead to dizziness and other health concerns, which put you at an increased risk for a fall. Use Canada‚Äôs Food Guide to help you choose healthy foods.  Create your own personal Food Guide to get started.  

Calcium and Vitamin D, along with weight-bearing activity (activities that involve exercise on your feet, with your bones supporting your weight), will help to keep your bones strong!

Use the Calcium Calculator at Osteoporosis Canada to help you identify if you are getting enough calcium. 

To learn more about Healthy Eating as you age, check out EatRight Ontario.


If you are having trouble eating because your mouth is sore or you have issues with your dentures check out the Oral Health Page.
