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.
