    • Panel of nutrition information required on all processed foods regulated by the Food and Drug Administration

  • Nutrition Facts

    • Title of information panel

      that is required on most foods

Serving size

Serving Size

  • Serving Size: is the listing of food that is considered a serving

    • Provided in familiar units, such as cups or pieces, followed by the metric amount, e.g., the number of grams

  • Serving per container: listing of number of servings in container or package



  • Calories: number of calories in 1 serving

  • Calories provide a measure of how much energy you get from a serving of the food.

  • The General Guide to Calories provides a general reference for calories when you look at a Nutrition Facts label. This guide is based on a 2,000 calorie diet.

Look at fat cholesterol sodium per serving

% Daily Value: Based on 2000 calorie diet

Eating too much fat, saturated fat, trans fat, cholesterol, or sodium may increase your risk of certain chronic diseases, like heart disease, some cancers, or high blood pressure.

Look at Fat, Cholesterol, & Sodium per serving

Daily value

% Daily Values

5% or less is LOW

20% or more is HIGH

Daily Value

Fiber vitamins minerals

Fiber, Vitamins, & Minerals

Dietary Fiber: Aim for 25g/day

Food labels

Food Labels

  • Ingredients listing: list of ingredients in a food. The ingredients are listed in order of quantity in food, the most to least.

  • Food additives: substances intentionally added to food

  • Enriched food: nutrients lost during processing are added back into food

Food labels nutrient and health claims1

Food Labels:Nutrient and Health Claims

  • Light

    • Contains 50% less fat or at least 1/3 fewer calories then regular version of product

  • Excellent source of…

    • Excellent source of calcium: one serving provides 20% or more of the DV for calcium

  • May reduce your risk of heart disease

    • Can appear on fiber containing grain products, fruits, and vegetables that are also low in saturated fats and cholesterol



  • Nutrients are substances that the body needs to regulate bodily functions, promote growth, repair body tissues, and obtain energy.

6 nutrients


  • Carbohydrates

  • Fats

  • Proteins

  • Vitamins

  • Minerals

  • Water

Energy nutrients

Energy Nutrients

  • Why do we need energy?

    • Your body needs energy for everything you do: running, playing an instrument, even sleeping.

    • You need energy to maintain your body temperature and keep your heart beating

  • Energy nutrients provide calories

    • Energy nutrients include carbohydrates, proteins and fats

  • Calorie: unit for the amount of energy released when nutrients are broken down

Energy nutrients carbohydrates

Energy Nutrients: Carbohydrates

Recommended daily intake: 45-65% of daily calories

  • Two Types:

    • Simple

    • Complex

Simple complex carbohydrates

Simple & Complex Carbohydrates

  • Simple Carbohydrates

    • Sugars that naturally occur in fruits, vegetables and milk

    • Added sugars to manufactured foods such as cookies, candies, soft drinks

  • Complex Carbohydrates

    • Starches, found in plant foods, such as potatoes, grains, rice, oats, corn, and wheat products

    • Complex carbohydrates take longer for your body to metabolize than simple carbohydrates



  • Fiber: a type of complex carbohydrate that can not be broken down by the body

  • Fiber passes through your body without being digested

  • Benefits of a high fiber diet include

    • Helps prevent constipation

    • May reduce risk of colon cancer

    • May help prevent heart disease

  • Fiber is found in whole grain breads and cereals, vegetables, fruits, nuts, beans and seeds

Nutrition eating disorders


  • Fats supply your body with energy, form your cells, maintain body temperature, and protect your nerves.

  • Recommended Daily Intake 20-35% of daily calories

Nutrition eating disorders


  • Unsaturated Fat aka “Good Fat”

    • Important for cardiovascular health & can help fight heart disease

    • Found in plant products

    • Monounsaturated & Polyunsaturated fats

      • Mono: olive oil, peanuts, and canola oil

      • Poly: safflower, corn and soybean oil, and seafood

  • Saturated Fats aka “Bad Fat”

    • Too much can lead to cardiovascular disease

    • Solid at room temperature

    • Found in animal fats, lard, and dairy products

    Physical activity simply means to move the body so it uses energy.

    For health benefits, physical activity should be moderate to vigorous for at least 30-60 minutes a day.

    Only moderate and vigorous intensity activities count toward meeting your physical activity needs. With vigorous activities, you get similar health benefits in half the time it takes you with moderate ones. You can replace some or all of your moderate activity with vigorous activity. 

    Physical activities


    walking briskly
