People look at food labels for different reasons. Whatever the reason, we’d all like to know how to use this information better and faster. The following label-building skills are intended to do just that: help you make quick, informed food choices that contribute to a healthy diet.
In Canada, pre-packaged foods feature a nutrition label somewhere on the package. It lists calories, protein, carbohydrate and fat. It might also list saturated fat, sugars, sodium, salt and fiber. The numbers quoted would match 100 grams or sometimes a single serving. Use nutrition labels as guides to help you choose a more balanced diet.
For a balanced diet:
- reduce intake of fat (especially saturated fat), salt and added sugars
- plan meals on starches, like potatoes, and wholegrain breads, pasta and rice
- eat more fruit and vegetables, a minimum of five portions, choosing a variety
- get proteins from meats and fish, pulses, milk and other dairy foods
