Canada’s first broad food survey in decades, conducted by Statistics Canada, polled more than 35,000 people about their previous day’s consumption, with few following nutritional guidelines.

More than a quarter of people aged 31 to 50 get more than 35% of their total calories from fat, although Canadians overall get fewer calories from fat (31%) than they did in the 1970s (40%).

The Statistics Canada report shows wealthier people eat the most fat, fruit and vegetables, while half of all adults and 70 per cent of kids aged four to eight don’t eat enough produce.

Twenty-five percent ate fast food, while candy, drinks and other foods laden with fat, oil, or sugar, are the second-highest daily calorie sources – 22%, with snacks providing more calories than breakfast.
