Do you know that Kellogg’s Special K has more sugar in it than Parle G biscuits?

Have you ever wondered if you can really eat Too Yumm befikr?

Does “0% Cholesterol” on Patanjali Marie biscuits really mean anything?

It’s all about Interpreting nutrition labels!  And that’s what we will understand and practice in this online, live meeting. Improve your knowledge of what is “healthy” and prepare to be surprised at how the food industry uses marketing to make us believe it’s spiel

We study Kelloggs Special K, Parle G biscuits, Lays Classic Salted chips, Patanjali Marie & Too Yumm Multigrain Chips. We look at the 4 nutrients of concern (sugar, salt, fat and saturated fat) for each of the foods and interpret them to see if they are high or not.

Session length: 1.5 hrs.
