Nutrition Education Facts Grocery Giveaway

Earlier this year I got to know the Nutrition Facts Table (the “Nft”) and last weekend I tested my knowledge at the Nutrition Education Facts booth at the Vancouver Home + Design Show.


Along with my nephew, I was quizzed on ten facts about the Nft, where we also learned how to read the table (and how to do a little math on the fly). For each correct answer, we were given a chip that we took over to the Nutrition Facto board to earn some prizes.

“It’s like Plinko,” I told my nephew, who shrugged. “The Price is Right? Plinko? No?” he remained unfazed by my game show trivia and took to the board to enter to win.

Coming away with a tote bag, t-shirt, and the chance to win a grocery gift card (I entered my nephew under his mother’s name), it was a fun way to start our day at the Home and Design Show.


Getting to Know the Nutrition Facts Table

There are three simple Nft steps that you can add to your grocery shopping mission that will help you make better health choices.

  1. Serving Size. It’s at the very top of the table, you can’t miss it. By checking a product’s serving size, you can:
    Understand how much of a nutrient you are eating
    Compare calories and nutrients between 2 similar packaged food products
    Compare it to the amount you actually eat
  2. Daily Value. The % DV is found on the right-hand side of a nutrition facts table. It is a guide to help you make informed food choices. It shows you if the serving size has a little or a lot of a nutrient:
    5% DV or less is a little
    15% DV or more is a lot
  3. Ingredients. Reading the ingredient list is both important and useful. It can help you:
    Check if a food product has a certain ingredient.
    Avoid ingredients in case of a food allergy or intolerance.

The NFt, found on most packaged food products in Canada, is key to making an informed choice for you and your family in a few easy steps. The campaign encourages Canadians to start with the Serving Size and then use the % DV to choose the nutrients you want a lot or a little of. By learning how to find out if a product has more of the ingredients you want, and less of those you want to avoid, you can make sure only the very best ends up in your cart, pantry, and body.

    Here’s my nutrition & nutrition labels tip:
    Anything with a nutrition label (packaged) isn’t going to be as healthful as something without one.

  105. NancySunday, November 6th, 2016 — 12:19pm PST

    It’s a shame Focus on the Facts’ contest isn’t structured as it was last year with a bonus entry for scoring well. With no bonus, there is no incentive to do well on the quiz or to even do the quiz.

  106. Siobhan S.Sunday, November 6th, 2016 — 12:21pm PST

    I think it’s a good idea to read labels, too much stuff on there that we don’t even know what it is. Also think GMO’s should be identified.

    I love using the NFt – sometimes I’m pleasantly surprised at how good something actually is when I’m not expecting it to be, and sometimes I am disappointed when I discover that something I thought was healthy actually isn’t. It’s such a great tool to use when grocery shopping – I use it often to compare products and make my buying decisions.

  125. JonnieSunday, November 6th, 2016 — 2:56pm PST

    The nutrition facts table can definitely be a bit confusing. I tweeted as well as @edmontonjb

    A hundred bucks for groceries would go a long way. I’ve been living off less than a hundred dollars a MONTH for more than a year now. If I win this $100, I’ll be able to stock my cubbards with cocoa, flour, shortening, baking powder, and other staples that should be in my home.

  170. Deanna LeeMonday, November 7th, 2016 — 1:09pm PST

    This is good information. There are too many confusing information out there and many products are falsely being advertised as healthy when they are not. Thanks for giving us a chance to win practical prize while providing us useful info in your post!

    Labels can be so misleading esp reading thru ingredients and fillers that you cant tell what their role is and if it harmful.

  198. Jason BMonday, November 7th, 2016 — 10:55pm PST

    Always like to learn about nutrition and that palm oil is contributing to climate change.

  199. angela eagleTuesday, November 8th, 2016 — 12:10am PST

    I always read the label and good for you to teach the young ones. What goes in your body is more important than what goes on it
