I really love grocery shopping. It's my favorite type of shopping. But I know for a lot of people grocery shopping can be overwhelming. Eating healthy is hard enough; trying to decode what all those nutrition claims on food packaging means just makes it worse.
The FDA has guidelines that all food manufacturers must follow regarding food labeling. Bt that doesn't always make it less confusing. The first thing you should look at is the Nutrition Facts and the Ingredients List. I have an example below that breaks down the parts of the label that I think are the most important, and tried to help get rid of some of the confusion.
