It is important to me to check them out. I do not usually buy lots of processed foods anyway, I prefer more meats, and the fresh produce.

I think it's very important. I use to never read them. now I spend more time in the grocery store. The extra time is worth the health benefits for me

Observing and studying physical food labels and performing on-going searches on the internet--solved this complication. Now, I can make accurate approximations on the fly and its like riding a bike. It just took....a....little....proactive...work, and now its second nature. If a specific food item doesn't have a label (as some fresh meat do), and I am not sure of the calorie value, I simply look it up on the internet by simply moving the fingers.

Studying labels and its associated portion size, calories, micro and macro nutrients--can be a critical component to ones personal situation. And, its is far easier today to obtain these food values as compared to years past.

Soccermom, I wish you and your family the best. Hope all is well with you.

Have a great day!

I read labels all the time. It is important that I do this. If it has too many that I do not know or recognize or has too many ingredients, it usually goes back on the shelf.
