Have you ever picked up a package of food and looked at the label in an attempt to see if it is good for you, only to realize you actually have no freaking clue what you are looking at?

It’s true sometimes nutrition facts can be confusing! But they don’t have to be when we know what we are looking for! In the video blog below, I overview key basics of label reading.

 

Remember . . .

  • nutrition facts are per serving, not per package
  •  % daily value is based off of a 2000 calorie diet, and may be misleading if you are not eating 2000 calories!
  • the more fiber the better!
  • avoid added sugar – check the amount of sugar in the nutrition facts, and look for sugar in the ingredient list! It’s best to eat no more than 25g of added sugar daily (the less the better)!
