Food Labels
By Cathy Pearl
  

1     Have you looked at a food label lately? There is a lot of information there. It isn't hard to understand. It can tell you a lot of important things.
 
2     The first thing you see is the serving size. This tells you how much you should eat at one time. Under that, it tells you how many servings you get from the package.
 
3     You have to be careful! Sometimes one item feeds two or three people. It wouldn't be healthy to eat the whole can thing by yourself.
 
4     Next is a list of nutrients in the food. There is fat. Fat comes in many forms. Some are better for you than others.
