About the Course

Let's face it - Eating healthy is easier said than done.

Buying healthy food products is not child’s play given the sly marketing tactics, obnoxious ingredient lists and puzzling nutrition labels for food. Nonetheless, packaged foods make up a significant portion of our daily diet. So you must ensure that they are nutritious and not hazardous.

Now you will have questions like:

How do I read a food label?
Are claims like “100% natural”, “Sugar-free”, “High Nutrition Value”, etc. really true?
Are nutrition facts and ingredients mentioned on the pack safe to trust?
What are those weird chemical names, “may-contain” ingredients and numbers?
