Interpreting Nutrition Labels

Ever get stuck trying to figure out what is so important on nutrition facts? Here some general information on nutrients that might appear on a nutrition label and how they benefit you!

 

***When it comes to nutrition facts, take everything with a grain of salt. It is more important to have a balanced approach to eating than to get stuck on the exact amount of calories or grams of fat in all of your foods. Eating the proper amounts of nutrient-dense foods even if they are a little higher in caloric value is better than eating a lot of low-fat, low-calorie foods with no nutritional value. In fact, the more low-nutrient dense food one consumes, the harder it becomes to get enough nutrients for your body without eating excess calories.1***
