A new report shows that Canadians are eating more fresh fruits and vegetables and less red meat than before. But we're also consuming more sugar and haven't made a dent in our fat intake in the past few years. Here are some highlights from the report that provide a snapshot of the way we eat:
8.5: Total kilograms of red meat Canadians have cut from their diets per person, on average, from 1981 to 2009.
80: Kilograms of fresh fruits and vegetables (excluding potatoes) consumed by the average Canadian in 2009.
15.2: Litres of wine consumed by Canadians aged 15 and older in 2009.
144: Number of additional calories consumed a day by Canadians in 2009 compared to 1981.
90: Litres of coffee consumed by the average Canadian in 2009.
