Better nutrition could be as easy as reading food product labels. Look out for these 3 things to get a good understanding of the food product you may be purchasing.
1. Guideline Daily Amounts (GDAs)
A quick glance at the amount of calories, total sugars, fat, saturated fat and sodium in 1 recommended serving size of your food and the percentage they represent in your recommended daily diet.
Look out for ‘Whole grains’, ‘0% fat’ or ‘No added MSG’. They are quick and simple guides of a product’s nutritional benefit.
3. Nutritional Information Panel (NIP)
Offers in-depth information regarding the food product. The better your understanding, the better you eat.
