Healthy Eating Toolkit: A Resource for Teaching English as an Additional Language

This toolkit was developed to provide EAL educators with tools and ideas on food and nutrition topics to teach English to their learners. It consists of four modules: Food Basics, Eating Well with Canada’s Food Guide, Meal Planning and Shopping and an Introduction to Food Safety. For more information, see the brochure and take a peek inside the toolkit.
