IG­NO­RANCE OF FOOD LA­BELS

Every day, I meet clients who don’t know how to read food la­bels. They look at the front of a packet and from that, they make a de­ci­sion on how healthy the prod­uct is. The front of a packet is de­signed by mar­ket­ing ex­perts to sell the prod­uct. The nutri­tion in­for­ma­tion on the back of the packet is where the facts are. For the sake of our­selves and our chil­dren, we need to learn how to read la­bels and take back con­trol of what’s go­ing into our bod­ies. It’s not dif­fi­cult when you know how, ask your lo­cal nu­tri­tion­ist or fit­ness pro­fes­sional.
