Food Labels


Food labels have good information to help you make healthy choices when buying packaged store-bought foods.

Nutrition facts

You can use Nutrition Facts tables to help choose products that are higher in the nutrients that you want more of and lower in the nutrients that you want less of. For example, fibre is important for a healthy digestive system and is low in the diets of Nunavummiut.

Here’s an example of how to use the Nutrition Facts Table to choose a breakfast cereal with more fibre. First, check to see if the serving size is similar for both products. Then look at the % Daily Value to see which cereal has more fibre.
