Know the simple method and Purchase Healthy Food Items

Know the simple method and Purchase Healthy Food Items -
How to know while Purchasing Which Food is good and Healthy?
Read the names of food content and quantity and in a second decide the food packet or bottle is good choice or best choice for consumption.

Just four items to remember and your every purchase will become the best choice and healthy choice.

Reality Views by sm -
Now a days many companies give information on their bottles as well as readymade packets the contents of the food like fat, sodium, sugar etc.
But majority people never read it or find it very difficult to understand that,
So first make the habit to read this information about contents of bottle per 100 mg or gram which is given, read the best before date etc.

Now I will give you the chart for four items, which are very important from that chart you can decide about the food and how much that food should be consumed daily.

Foods per 100 gram –

Low means safe to eat

Medium means less often not daily recommended

High – means if possible avoid that food or once a week or once a month.

Fat -
Low - Less than 3g –
Medium – between 3 to 20 gram
High - more than 20 grams

Saturated Fat -
Low - less than 1.5 grams
Medium – between 1.5 to 5 gram
High - more than 5 grams

Sugar –
Low - less than 5 grams
Medium – 5 to 15 gram
High - more than 15 grams

Salt -
Low - Less than 0.3 grams
Medium – between 0.3 gram to 1.5 gram
High – More than 1.5 grams.

Now try to purchase the items using this chart and you will be satisfied that what ever you are purchasing for the family is good and healthy choice.

Low means good for daily eating. Best choice.

Medium means 2 or 3 days in a week.

High means few times in a month, if possible avoid it always.

Now when you will go to shopping just keep this list with you, purchase accordingly, and try to purchase items, which are in a category of low, or medium content wise avoid High.
High means danger for health.

Yes, I read an articl too about this the other day. And they did a survey of the snacks like chips, crackers and stuff. Even those that claim to be baked and not fried may have a fewere calories ( marginally) but have higher quantities or equal amount of trans-fat and therefore are not really all that much of a safe substitute. One should really read the labels carefully.
