The New Year has begun and some people will have plans to start eating more healthily. The problem with many of these plans is that they often fall by the wayside after a couple of weeks as maintaining a healthy diet is not easy. This infographic from HappyCleans aims to clear up the big problem of how misleading food labels can be. For example, two very popular words at the store are natural and organic and to the untrained eye they both mean very similar things. However, they it’s important to know that organic is a far more healthy option.
The labels on snack products are also worth understanding. You might think that it’s okay to eat a lot of a reduced fat snack, but remember these foods are still very unhealthy. Just because they are 25% less unhealthy, does not make them healthy. The reality is that while some food labels are beneficial, many of them are more marketing ploys than anything else.
Don’t let misinformation on food labels get in the way of your plans for a healthier 2018. Check out the full infographic for more information.
