Food Labels & Portion Size

Do you know the serving size of that muffin you are eating? Oddly, many packaged items have unrealistic portion sizes, like 3/4 of a spear of a pickle. When you therefore look at the nutrition label on that jar of pickles, the calorie count, fat, and sodium are all listed for 3/4 of a pickle! Help your health class be more aware of the claims of nutrition labels as you discuss nutrition and serving sizes.
