Reading the Nutrition Label… Made Easy!

Reading the Nutrition Label… Made Easy!

How many calories am I actually eating? What does % Daily Value mean? What nutrients should I limit or increase and why? What is the nutrition fact label really trying to tell me? In today’s day and age, reading a nutrition label can be a challenging task, one that many Americans ignore or interpret incorrectly. This is one reason that more that one-third of the adults in the United States are obese (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2015). Therefore, in an effort to eat better and live healthier lives, it is important to decode the nutrition label and figure out how to make healthier food choices.
