    Be an Informed Shopper!

    By Heather Compeaux, LDN
    Grocery shopping isn?t always fun or easy for most people. It gets more complicated when you try to shop for healthy food and stay within your budget. To add more difficulty to your shopping, companies spend millions of dollars on advertising and marketing to trick you into buying their product. They highlight one small positive thing about a product to convince consumers that it is healthy. While focusing on that one healthy claim, we often miss the big picture.
    Keep the following 4 TIPS in mind the next time you are grocery shopping:
    1. Serving Size is Key. Always look at the serving size of a product! It is often much smaller than you think. All of the information on the nutrition facts label is based on this portion size, so if you eat double the listed serving size, then you are eating double the nutrients as well.
    2. Sugar Free Often Means More Fat. Manufacturers often add fat to replace the sugar to make their product taste better. Compare nutritional labels on the regular and sugar free versions of a product and often, the light or regular product is better for you than the sugar free one. Also, Sugar Free doesn?t mean carbohydrate free- this is a common misconception.
    3. Choose Whole Grain and Complex Carbohydrates. Check the ingredients label for whole wheat, whole grain, whole oats or 100% whole grain listed FIRST on the list. If the label lists white flour, wheat flour, sugar, sucrose, fructose or corn syrup, then the product contains ?simple? or refined carbohydrates and should be avoided.
    4. Don?t Be Fooled by the Big, Bold Print on the Box! Always flip the product over and read the food label and ingredients for yourself and draw your own conclusions.
