About the Programme

 

Healthy living starts with making healthy choices but how is that possible when nutrition labels can be so confusing? With information such as serving size and different nutritional values, it may be difficult to decide which food product is healthier than others. 

 

Learn how to make sense of these labels and start on your journey to making more informed food choices at the supermarket.
