  • This label doesn’t have any of it’s % DV less than 5%...need a different label in this example
  • Need to fix text – maybe put in a box, like on slide 8
  • Change label to show two different labels with varying amounts of sugar, maybe kids cereal would be good?
  • Too much text on this s – slide – need to reformat
  • Need label with some fiber on it/ use circles to identify what you want audience to look atTell other benefits of high fiber…such as weight control, constipation
  • Need same foods from handout on your slides, so it is easier to follow along
  • Show answerrather than tell

    1. 1. Just The Facts<br />Understanding The Nutrition Facts Label on Foods<br />
    2. 2. The Nutrition Facts Label<br />
    3. 3. Serving Size<br />Notice the serving size amount<br />cups, ounces, pieces<br />Serving size affects calories and the amount of nutrients a person is getting<br />
    4. 4. Calories and calories from fat<br />Calories are a measurement of how much energy you get from a single serving of food<br />General guide to calories:<br />40 calories per serving is low<br />100 calories per serving is moderate<br />400 calories per serving is high<br />
    5. 5. Calories from fat<br />The amount of the total calories that come from fat sources<br />Calories are per serving size<br />more servings = more calories<br />Calories and calories from fat<br />Eating too many calories per day is linked to overweight and obesity.<br />
    6. 6. <ul><li>Limit These Nutrients:</li></ul>Nutrients<br />Shown to increase risk of heart disease and high blood pressure<br />5% or less<br />% daily value is low<br />
    7. 7. Get enough of these:<br />Nutrients<br />Help reduce the risk of certain diseases<br />20% or more <br />% daily value is high<br />
    8. 8. Percent Daily Value (%DV)<br /> Helps you decide if a serving of food is high or low in a nutrient<br />Percentage is based on the Daily Value recommendations for a 2,000 calories diet<br />Don’t have to know your calorie needs to use the % daily value<br />5% or less is low, 20% or more is high<br />
    9. 9. Sugars<br /><ul><li>Naturals sugars from fruits and milk are BEST
    10. 10. Avoid processed sugars from white sugar, high fructose corn syrup, corn syrup, and molasses
    11. 11. Check ingredients for added sugars
    12. 12. Compare amount of sugar in similar products</li></ul>Limit added sugar to no more than 40 grams/day… <br />= 10 teaspoons of sugar!<br />
    13. 13. Fat<br /><ul><li>Total Fat
    14. 14. from all sources
    15. 15. Daily value = less than 65g for 2,000 calories
    16. 16. Saturated Fat
    17. 17. Typically from meat sources
    18. 18. “Solid” fats
    19. 19. Butter, lard, suet
    20. 20. Daily value = less than 20g for 2,000 calories
    21. 21. Trans Fat
    22. 22. Typically from hydrogenated oils
    23. 23. Hydrogenated soybean oil
    24. 24. Raise LDL (bad) cholesterol levels
    25. 25. Look for foods where %DV is 5% or less from fats</li></li></ul><li>Total carbohydrates<br />ALL carbohydrates in a food<br />Starches, sugars, milk sugars, and fiber<br />Dietary Fiber<br />Daily value = 25g or more for 2,000 calories<br />High fiber controls cholesterol levels<br />Carbohydrates<br />
    26. 26. Using side 1 of the handout:<br />Is this a healthy food?<br />5% or less of %DV from fat<br />20% or more of %DV from fiber, vitamin A, vitamin C, calcium, and iron<br />Low amount of sugar<br />Low to moderate amount of calories<br />Learning exercise<br />
    27. 27. Why?<br />Fats are too high<br />Nutrients are too low<br />High amount of sugar from added sugar sources<br />High in calories<br />Answer: NO<br />
    28. 28. Using side 2 of the handout:<br />Which of these three foods are the healthiest?<br />Compare serving sizes, fat, fiber, vitamins, and sugar<br />Comparing Nutrition Facts Labels<br />
    29. 29. Answer: B<br />Label A:<br />Very high in fat<br />Moderately high in sugar<br />Low in nutrients<br />High in calories<br />Label C:<br />Moderately high in fat<br />Very high in sugar<br />Moderate in nutrients<br />High in calories<br /><ul><li>Label B:
    30. 30. Low in fat
    31. 31. Moderate in sugar
    32. 32. High in nutrients
    33. 33. Moderate in calories</li></li></ul><li>Read the labels for better health!<br />
