The information on food labels intends to help consumers become savvy about their food choices. The front, back, and sides of a package are filled with information to inform us what the food contains and to guide us in making healthier selections of processed foods.
People look at food labels for a variety of reasons. But whatever the reason, many consumers would like to know how to use this information more effectively and efficiently. The Understanding Food Labels Project intends to make it easier for the students to use the Nutrition Facts labels to make quick, informed food decisions to help them choose a healthy diet.
