"How do I know which packaged foods are healthy?"

  • Claims on the front of packaged foods are often misleading.
  • Products labeled "low-fat" are often high in added salt and sugar.
  • Skip the claims, save time, and just read the ingredient list.
  • Choose foods with a short list, whole grains, and not too much added sugar and salt.

Next time you shop, choose a packaged food with fewer than six ingredients in the ingredient list.
