While Canadians ate healthier in 2002, Statistics Canada says that we are eating more. So how much food are we eating?

In 2002, each Canadian averaged 93 kilograms of fruit (a 15-percent increase since 1992), 110 kilograms of vegetables (a four-percent increase in ten years), and seven kilograms of fish (a 10-percent increase over 1992 levels). In contrast, the amount of calories from carbohydrates and proteins, and total consumption of vitamins and minerals remained constant and calories from fat decreased.
