Do you know exactly what you are putting into your grocery cart and what you could be avoiding?  

Do you know how to get the right Nutritional Facts by reading the Nutrition Facts table (NFt) on your food packages? 

You may remember my post here about the Nutritional Facts table (NFt). The NFt can help you make educated choices when choosing the food you serve to your family by starting with the Serving Size and then looking at the percent daily value (% DV). By using the Serving Size and % DV in the NFt, you can choose foods that have more of the nutrients you need like fibre and calcium, and less of what you don’t want , like saturated and trans fats and sodium.

It really makes a difference when you take a minute to check these things out when you are shopping for your family meals.

We were invited to attend the Carp Fair and visit the Nutrition Facts Education booth and play a little game to see how well we understand the Nutrition Facts table (NFt) by playing  “Nutrition FACT-O” game. This was not your typical carnival game! Kind of like PLINKO but with nutritional facts!


The host asked us specific questions about items using info on the NFt. It may sound easy but this was timed and we had a whole 30 seconds to answer the questions. If we got it right we got a “Nutrition FACT-O” chip to send down the down the Nutrition FACT-O board for a chance to win branded prizes and ballots for a chance to win a grocery gift card. The faster you answer, the faster you win.

I think the kids did pretty good with answering the questions, I even found myself stumped on one or two. I blame the lack of coffee that day. We had a nice day  the Carp Fair and learning more about Nutrition Facts!
