READ & DECODE: THE SMART WAY TO READ A FOOD LABEL
Learning how to read and understand food labels can help you make healthier nutrition choices. What should a consumer be aware of when reading a food label? What are the components of a food label? What kinds of ingredients are listed and hidden on food labels? Are you being deceived by food manufacturers into thinking products are healthier or better quality than they really are? What are all those numbers on fruits and veggies in the supermarket. In this workshop you will learn smart guidelines that help decipher food labels to ensure you are making the best nutritional choices and an empowered consumer about your food the food you eat.
