Label Reading for Better Eating (FCS1049/HE548)

Reading the nutrition facts label helps you know what is in the food you are eating. The label is also helpful for making healthy food choices—you can compare nutrition information for different types of foods, or the same foods from different brands, before you buy. This 2-page fact sheet was written by Glenda L. Warren and Claudia Peñuela, and published by the UF Department of Family Youth and Community Sciences, February 2011.
