Posted on Tuesday, November 14, 2017 06:08 AM

The Canadian Journal of Public Health has released a study on lunches served at randomly selected childcare centres in New Brunswick and Saskatchewan.

On average, they did not meet provincial nutritional recommendations. Lunches were low in calories and fibre.

Overall, Saskatchewan centres served greater amounts of food than in New Brunswick.

French speaking centres provided less fat, less saturated fat, fewer servings of meat and alternatives and more trans fat  than English speaking centres.
