Read Food Labels
Cooking is great. But for most families, it's not realistic to cook everything, at every meal, from scratch.
When you buy processed foods, check the Nutrition Facts label and choose items that are lower in sugar, saturated fat, and sodium.
A food is considered "low" if a single serving provides 5% or less of the daily limit for sugar, saturated fat, or sodium.
Foods are considered "high" if a serving provides 20% or more of each nutrient.
