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. You have to be careful! Sometimes one item has two or three servings. It wouldn't be healthy to eat the whole thing all at once.
 
3     Next is a list of nutrients in the food. Fat is one of them. Fat comes in many forms. Some are better for you than others. Saturated fat is bad.
