With or without Ticks or Stars!

About the presentation
With more people buying processed foods, it’s critical to give clients quick, easy tips to discern if a food is healthy or not (with or without Ticks or Stars!) Accredited Practising Dietitian, Catherine Saxelby, will show you how she teaches a client to read a food label using a combination of the Ingredient List and the Nutrition Information Panel. You’ll learn quick and easy short-cuts to show your clients:
How an Ingredient List is arranged
Which additives to avoid (and which are not a true problem)
Health claims to ignore such as organic, real, light, no artificial colours or preservatives, etc
How to interpret a Nutrition Panel from canned corn to wholemeal bread
What are cut-offs for the NIP for sugars, sodium and protein
