Healthy Living Tip #274

Look for the Nutrition Facts table on packaged foods. The Nutrition Facts table, along with the ingredient list and nutrition claims (such as a package that identifies a food is “high in fibre”) can help you make informed food choices.

  • Use the Nutrition Facts table to compare the nutrients in food products more easily.
  • Compare the serving size listed at the top of the Nutrition Facts table to the amount you eat.
  • Use the % Daily Value to see if a food has a lot or a little of a nutrient.
