This is a great interactive tool for learning how to read a food label. It is not in the format of the new nutrition facts panel that will be required beginning in July 26, 2018.

Great use of PowerPoint to construct a knowledge based lesson on the Nutrition Facts Label with interactive learning opportunities. The learner applies what they have learned through the quiz at the end. Will be helpful to update this lesson once the new food label is officially released or could update the lesson now with info on what the purported changes are

PowerPoint presentation used to explain the nutrition label was well developed. Easy to read and understand. Explained fats and their relationship to disease, the different types of fat and where to find the different ingedrients on the label. (ie, proteins, carbohydrates, fiber, vitamins and minerals, etc..)

This resource will be very useful to the consumer. There is an interactive quiz/lesson after the PowerPoint slides.
