    I downloaded the my plate app to my phone to see what it had to offer. It seems like a great resource, and gives you simple goals to pursue each day.

    It’s always educational to read what’s really in the groceries you’re buying.

    I read labels quite often. You must be careful what a serving size is. You may think a certain container is a serving, but if you read closely, it may be actually 2 or 3 servings, which multiplies the carbohydrates, calories, fat etc. You are consuming if eating/drinking the whole container.

    Initially reading food labels takes a little more time in the grocery store, but the more you do, the faster you will get at reading food labels. Reading food labels is time well spent for better health!

    I use food labels for serving size all the time. Even boxed cereal have different quantities for a serving. I also look to see what the first ingredients are. Doesn’t always match what they advertise.

    I’ve read food labels for years and have taught my kids to do the same. You can find out surprising things you would never have thought was in something!
