All trimmed pork cuts, with the exception of ribs, qualify as ‘lean’ or ‘extra-lean’ and therefore qualify for the Health Check™ program. The Health Check™ symbol tells you it’s a healthy choice and guides you to foods that you should eat more often as part of a healthy diet. Canada’s Food Guide to Healthy Eating recommends that Canadians eat 2 to 3 servings per day from the meat and alternatives food group, and that they choose leaner meats, like pork, more often. Include lean pork cuts as part of your healthy mealtime planning.
