This week con­cludes my series on nutri­tion. If you haven’t seen the other videos, I highly rec­om­mend at least watch­ing this one. This week I cover food label­ing, how to read the nutri­tion facts, FDA guide­lines on some things that can and can’t be said on food pack­ag­ing, the food pyra­mid and more!

Again, I am now up in iTunes as a video pod­cast, so just search for “nom blog” and you’ll find all 3 nutri­tion videos, plus 3 older cook­ing show videos and what­ever else is to come.

Here are some links for fur­ther info related to the show:

*A link to read­ing nutri­tion facts on food labels.

*A link on fast food marketing.

*A link to the “Clean 15″ and the “Dirty Dozen”, use­ful to have with you at the gro­cery store.

Oh, yes, and wait, a give­away!

Noth­ing too big, as I have some awe­some sur­prises and con­tests com­ing up in the very near future, but I will pick 2 peo­ple who leave com­ments related to this week’s video to receive a copy of one of my very favorite stickers:

And now, on to the show!

    Very nice; this one was pretty inter­est­ing. I didn’t real­ize it was so recently that food labelling was stan­dard­ized! Wild.

    Thank you for this amaz­ing com­pre­hen­sive video!! I did not know about the ‘good’ and ‘excel­lent’ percentages.

    Ah, organic. Per­son­ally, I can han­dle GMO if it means no con­ven­tional pes­ti­cides and fer­til­iz­ers. I won­der if in the 95% organic ingre­di­ents, the 5% nonor­ganic could include salt?

    Let me say as a Kinder­garten teacher, it is so hard to teach the food pyra­mid that you don’t agree with :o(

      Hey Julia!

      Yes, I imag­ine salt is in there, along with things like Vit­a­min E. It’s often used as a preser­v­a­tive and the syn­thetic is more sta­ble than the organic compound.

      Oh, I can only imag­ine try­ing to explain that to kids! How frustrating!

    Thanks Kris! I really think this infor­ma­tion is important!
