Increasing scientific evidence indicates that what you eat can positively impact your health and well-being. Studies also show that foods high in fat and sugar and low in fiber and complex carbohydrates are increasingly linked with a variety of diseases. One way to choose nutritious foods is to find out what's in the foods you're buying. The Nutrition Labeling and Education Act requires all packagedfoods, meat, and poultry products to include nutrition information on their labels. To make comparisons easier, packages now express nutrition information exactly the same way from package to package. By reading the label, you can see how much total fat, saturated fat, cholesterol, sodium, carbohydrates, dietary fiber, sugar, and protein are in a particular food, as well as other ingredients. To learn more about how to choose nutritious foods, contact a healthcare professional.
