Food labels tell you the nutritional content of a food item. You can compare two different items by using the Nutrition Facts label to choose the healthier option. To learn more, check out the Eating healthier and feeling better using the Nutrition Facts Label brochure and the READ IT before you EAT IT! poster.

Use the Nutrition Facts label to compare food choices. The example above shows two soup options. The Nutrition Facts labels show us that the low-sodium vegetable soup has less sodium per serving than the original vegetable soup – in this case half the amount. This makes the low-sodium vegetable soup the healthier choice, as long as the serving sizes are about the same size.
