Grande Cache is currently without network, landline or cellphone services

911 calls can still be made from cellphones but 911 calls cannot be made from landlines. The Grande Cache Community Health Complex remains open and continues to provide care to all patients. EMS continues to be available for area residents. The cause of the issue is being investigated by Telus.

The Healthy Food Checker was originally hosted on the Healthy U website and was named the Healthy U Food Checker and is now available on the Alberta Health Services website.

About the Healthy Food Checker

With so many different kinds of foods available making healthy choices can be a challenge. Basic foods such as apples, oatmeal, lower fat milk and lean beef are easy to identify as healthy choices. However, foods are complex and contain many ingredients, which can make it harder to decide which ones to choose.

The Healthy Food Checker makes choosing healthy, nutrient-rich foods easier. It compares the nutrition information from a Nutrition Facts Table to the Alberta Nutrition Guidelines, and will put foods and drinks into one of three groups:

Choose Most Often

Choose Sometimes

Choose Least Often

The Alberta Nutrition Guidelines for Adults and the Alberta Nutrition Guidelines for Children and Youth help Albertans make healthier food and drink choices at home, at work and in public spaces like schools, child care centres and recreation centres.
