Using the My Food Journal

Write down your food choices each day for a week, using copies of the My Food Journal.

Note that the My Food Journal does not have a section to add foods that do not fall into one of the four food groups.  This is to reinforce the promotion of choosing foods based on Canada's Food Guide recommendations. 

To address foods that do not fall into one of the four food groups, limit foods and beverages high in calories, fat, sugar or salt (sodium).

Self Reflection Activity

After you've used the My Food Journal for a few days, think about these questions:

  • Do you notice any patterns in your eating habits?
  • Do you eat a lot from one food group and not much from another? If so, what food group?
  • Are there one or more food groups that you think you would like to work on?
  • What's one change you plan to make around the food choice that you are making?
