Q: On any given day 25% of Canadian children and adults do this. What is it?
A: Eat or drink something from a fast food outlet.
The majority of Canadians did not eat the recommended daily minimum of five servings of vegetables and fruit. Over a quarter of men and women in their thirties and forties derived more than 35% of their calories from fat. One-third of children aged 4 to 9 did not have the recommended two servings of milk products a day, and among seniors aged 71 or older, the proportion surpassed 70%. Canadians of all ages obtained over a fifth of their calories from “other foods,” and on a given day, a quarter of adults and children ate or drank something from a fast-food outlet.
