OTTAWA – Federal Health Minister Ginette Petitpas Taylor is accusing Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer of spreading "misinformation" about the Canada Food Guide.

Responding to Scheer's comments, that he would review the new version of Canada's Food Guide if he becomes prime minister, Petitpas Taylor defended the work her government did to update the document and took aim at what she said was Conservative politicians wanting to "impose their ideology instead of relying on facts.

Speaking at the Dairy Farmers of Canada annual meeting in Saskatoon last week, Scheer said he would give the new Food Guide a new look because he thinks it is "not based on sound science." He also went on to say at the industry gathering that he believes chocolate milk "saved" his son's life, as a picky eater.
