How to Read a Food Label
The Facts on Reading Food Labels
Are you label-conscious? Reading labels can help you make wise food choices.

- Total fat
- Saturated fat
- Total carbohydrates
Take a healthy, nutritious approach to eating by learning about nutrition facts. Find out more on How to Understand and Use the Nutrition Facts Label.
