Re: "One bad meal sends pressure soaring,"?Apr. 24:


By serving a low-fat breakfast from grocery food and a high-fat breakfast from restaurant food, the University of Calgary study leaves the misleading impression that where we eat is more important than what we eat.


In fact, all the food items that were included in the test meals are enjoyed by Canadians both at home and away.


Demonizing restaurant food may grab headlines, but it doesn’t reflect reality or deliver useful information to Canadians.


Surely the message should be focused on the importance of balance, moderation and variety in the overall diet.

On average, Canadians source just one in 10 of their meals and snacks from a restaurant. Whether they are buying a complete meal or a simple cup of coffee, they will find a wide variety of menu choices that are part of a healthy, balanced diet.
