The Science of Addictive Food – Look at your food labels!

I know you will find this video quite fascinating.

Did you know that there is actually a science

which goes behind the preparation of packaged foods?

Do you agree with what was said in the video

about how packaged food makes you feel when you eat it?

When was the last time you ate processed, packaged food?

How can you make better, more informed choices

about what goes in your mouth?

How you can substitute ” fatty, sugary salty, addictive packaged foods

“for healthy, fresh, non-addictive foods that are in fact good for you?”

Reading a food label

Hi everyone

As we continue our Healthy Living, Healthy People study we will now consider food labels.

Have you ever stopped to look at a food label?

Watch the following video.

Are you getting the right amount of fibre or is there

too much salt, or carbohydrates, or sugar,

in the packaged foods you are eating?

Do you know what each number stands for? What is each good for?

Did you realise that sugar can come under so many headings?

See if you can work out how much of the good nutrients

you are really getting when you eat packaged foods.
