Healthy Eating guidelines include recommendations related to the food environment, menu planning, nutritious food and beverages, healthy cooking techniques and food and eating safety.

Supporting information is provided by Ottawa Public Health through additional resources, such as menus, recipes and training e-modules. These guidelines are also available in French.
