Reading a Food Label: How to decide what foods are good for you and your family.

Being an educated consumer is the first step in making healthy choices for you and your family. Labels can be overwhelming but I am here to help! How much is too much or too little? What are all these ingredients anyway? Whether you have never taken a look at the Nutrition Facts label or are a committed checker, chances are you will come away from this talk feeling empowered and educated when buying food.

Shopping on a Budget: Healthy does not have to mean expensive.

One of the most common comments I hear is that healthy eating is too expensive. I promise, you don’t have to spend your whole paycheck to eat a balanced diet. As a former Supermarket Dietitian, I’ll provide all the ins and outs of eating a delicious balanced diet without breaking the bank.

Feeding the Picky Eater: Help your child learn to love food.

So many parents get frustrated and worried about their child’s picky eating habits. I will show you how to break through that wall of frustration and gain back control at the dinner table. No more cooking multiple meals a night for the family. I will show you the first steps in helping your child become a competent, healthy eater for a lifetime to come.

Tip of the Day

Often times we read the label and aren’t sure what we are looking at or what numbers are “good.” The best way to read a label is to first look at the serving size, which tells us the amount we would need to eat to equal the rest of the nutrients on the label. It is important to be aware of the serving size listed, because they range from 1.5 ounces for a favorite cookie to one-tenth of a pound for raw kale. Next read the Percent Daily Value on the label’s right side. The percentages in that column tell you what percentage of the recommended daily nutrients you get after eating one serving size. For example, if a serving size of your favorite snack is a whopping one pretzel, and the percent daily value for sodium is 41%, then each pretzel you eat gives you 41% of the recommended daily intake for sodium. Two pretzels gives you 82%. Three pretzels gives you 123% and so on. A convenient way to look at percent daily values is to follow the 5-20 rule; 5% or less is considered low, while 20% or more is considered high.
