The nutrition label on each food item will tell you all the information about that food.  For some, however, this information isn’t exactly that reader-friendly.  Fear not, as it’s actually easier than you think.

Serving Size

Its size is based on the amount people eat. Similar food items will have similar serving sizes, thus making it easier to compare 2 foods of the same category.

% Daily Value

This indicates how food will fit in a 2,000 calorie diet.  This will help you to understand if the food has a lot or just a bit of the important nutrients.

The middle section

The nutrients you’ll find listed in the middle section are the ones that are most important to your health. This information can help you to calculate your daily limit of fat, fiber, sodium, and other nutrients.

Vitamins & minerals

The percent daily value found here is the same as the U.S. Recommended Daily Allowance for the vitamins and minerals.  

Now that you know what the nutrition label actually means, it’ll be a lot easier to eat healthily.  Eating healthy is a great thing – especially when you use the nutrition label to help you with your food choices.
