Facts Up Front
October 8, 2015
Using the food label to make meals and food choices work for you!
We’re building healthier diets with smart nutrition labels! Registered Dietitian– Kimberly Kirchherr joins us to discuss Facts Up Front. That’s a labeling system that provides key nutrition information – right where you can see it. The easy-to-read labels can help you make better food choices for you and your family. It shows the number of calories and the amount of saturated fat, sodium and sugar, found in each serving. It may also highlight good nutrients such as fiber and calcium. It makes our life so much easier, when we’re pressed for time, at the grocery store. Facts Up Front is a voluntary initiative led by the Grocery Manufacturers Association, which represents the nation’s leading food and beverage companies. Knowing your choices in advance can help make meal planning easier. And remember– as you’re planning your meals, think about choosing foods from multiple food groups: fruits, vegetables, grains, proteins and dairy foods. Facts Up Front is simplifying nutrition.. so more people get on a balanced food track. You don’t want to miss this!
