Calories

Check here to be sure

the calories are within

the appropriate limits:

200

calories

per

food

Item

.

Calories from Fat

No more than

35

%

of

calories should be from fat.

So how do we figure this

out? The equation goes like

this: calories from fat/total

calories

= 0.17

÷ 150

25

To form a percent, we

multiply this number by 100

0.17

×

100

This means that 17% of the

calories are from fat.

Saturated Fat

Less than

%

10

of total calories

should come from saturated fat, but

the label lists saturated fat in grams.

A simple trick for converting grams

to calories is to remember that 1

gram of fat contains 9 calories.

Grams

saturated fat × calories per

gram = calories from saturated fat.

0.5

× 9 = 4.5 calories

But now we need to know if that is

:

10

% or less of the total calories

(

Calories

from saturated fat÷ total

(calories

) × 100 = % calories from

saturated fat.

×

1

(4.5/150)

= 3% calories from

00

saturated fat.

Sodium

The sodium should be

200

mg.

Sugars

Item should be no more than

%

35

sugar by weight.

(

Grams of sugar ÷ grams per

serving) × 100 = % sugar by

weight.

(1

÷40) × 100 = 2.5% sugar by

weight.

Trans Fat

All food items should have no

more than

0.5

grams

of trans fat

per serving.

What about Whole Grains?

Check that meals and snacks are whole grain by scanning the ingredient list. The first

item should be some type of

whole grain

, such as whole wheat

flour,buckwheat

, barley.
