Are you ashamed to admit that you are confused by food labels? Well now you don't have to be. During this support group event, we will show you how to read labels to get the important information you need so that you can make better food choices. The focus will be on serving size, fats, sugar, sodium, protein and fiber. Bring your favorite food packages with labels, or even your least favorite labels and we will go over them together. Don’t worry, you are not alone in thinking that labels are designed to puzzle us! Join us so we can solve the puzzles together.
After this support group, patients will be able to:
- Incorporate new knowledge about labels into your food decision making skill set.
- Assess nutrition information about fat, sodium, fiber and other nutrients from the food label.
- Increase confidence in your understanding which products to buy versus others.
