Healthy Weights

Canadians are heavier now than ever before. The prevalence of overweight individuals and obesity has increased markedly in the past two decades. Changes in dietary and fitness habits, such as over-consumption and an increased sedentary lifestyle, have significantly contributed to the weight-gain epidemic.

Getting adequate intakes of folate is especially important for women who may become pregnant. Women of childbearing age or planning to become pregnant should eat plenty of folate-rich foods and take a daily multivitamin or mineral supplement that contains 0.4 mg (400 ug) of folic acid.
