Have you ever looked at the nutritional information that is printed on your food packaging and wonder what it all means? Nutritional information is usually displayed on the outsider packaging of our food. This information helps us to understand the ingredients and nutrients in our food. In this way, this nutritional information helps to explain what is inside your food. It is a bit like a table of contents that you would see in a book, or like a diagram that you get sometimes when you get a new toy that needs to be assembled. By understanding what the nutritional information is telling us, we will know more about the food we are eating. That is why it is important to be able to read these food labels.
