  • Hi, I'm Josie Fehrenbacher and I'm a student

  • at Eastern Illinois University.

  • Today I'm going to help you figure out food labels.

  • Food labels can be a little confusing, but if you think of

  • them like a table of contents you will know that they're just

  • a quick reference to find out what's inside your food item.

  • The food label tells you about the nutrients inside,

  • and the nutrients are what you need for your body

  • to work and function properly.

  • The food label is printed on the outside of many packages,

  • so it's pretty easy to find.

  • All of these items here have a food label on the outside of

  • cans and jars, on the side of your bread, on the bag of chips,

  • and on the sides of your containers.

  • Food labels aren't friendly for kids because they're calculated

  • and based on adult needs, but you can still get

  • helpful information from them.

  • You can get a general idea about how many servings

  • are in a package, how to measure a serving,

  • and what nutrients are inside the box.

  • You can also use the label to compare foods, like which food

  • has more calcium, or which food has more fiber.

  • There are three sections to a food label.

  • The first section is the serving size section, and the second is

  • the nutrient section, and the last section is the footnote.

  • The serving size is at the top.

  • The serving size tells you how to measure one serving, and it

  • also tells you how many servings are inside your package.

  • Along with that, serving sizes are measured in similar amounts,

  • such as cups, ounces, or pieces.

  • Having similar measurements helps you

  • compare different food items.

  • Next is the energy that the food will provide.

  • Energy is measured in calories.

  • Calories from fat are also listed as well.

  • People like these on labels because it helps them

  • make decisions about how much energy to consume

  • to support normal daily function.

  • People also pay attention to calories sometimes

  • because they are watching how much energy

  • to support their special activities.

  • The nutrients listed below are all based one serving.

  • First, at the top of the list is total fat.

  • Fat is important for your body to function and to develop.

  • Below fat, your label might list saturated fat,

  • unsaturated fat, and trans fat.

  • The reason why fats are listed is because some people

  • have to limit their intake of fat and the label

  • helps them make healthy choices.

  • Next is cholesterol and sodium.

  • Sodium is also known as salt.

  • Both of these things are measured in milligrams,

  • and they're on the label because just like fats,

  • sometimes people like to limit how much they consume.

  • Next is total carbohydrates.

  • Carbohydrates are your main source of energy,

  • and they are also listed in total.

  • Dietary fiber and sugar add up to the total carbohydrates.

  • Next is protein, and it is measured in grams.

  • Protein helps your body build and repair

  • your organs, and your muscles, and and your blood.

  • Protein requirements vary from boys to girls

  • and they change with age.

  • Vitamins and minerals are listed below protein.

  • Vitamins and minerals do not give you any energy,

  • but they help support your normal body functions.

  • So, vitamin A, vitamin C, calcium and iron

  • will always be on the label.

  • Other vitamins and minerals may also be there.

  • The last section is the footnote.

  • The footnote is there just to remind you that

  • all the percentages listed on the right side of the label

  • are based on what an adult needs.

  • They are different for you for kids,

  • but they are still helpful.

  • Reading food labels can be difficult,

  • but with practice and looking through them

  • as you prepare your meals will help you.

  • I hope you found this information fun and helpful.

  • Thanks for watching.
