Mastering the Skill of Food Label-reading
Reading food labels, including the nutrition facts information, can be almost like reading another language. Understanding the food label and the various ingredients is very important and helpful for making healthy decisions about what you put into your body, but there are just so many words on these labels and some that we may have never seen before.
For this class, the instructor will be bringing in various food labels for us to practice with. We'll also compare the old and new (coming in 2018) nutrition facts labels and learn what nutrition information to really focus on when making our food decisions. Guests are welcome to bring a food label that they would like help reading or that they would like to share with the group.
