Assignment 6: Labels and limits
 
The purpose of this assignment is for you practice reading labels and knowing the limits for sodium, fat and added sugar. Keep a copy of your completed work just in case there is a problem with the submission. This assignment is worth 5% of your final grade.
 
 
Examine the menu and analysis for this day’s diet and answer the questions below:
 
 
Questions:

  1. Is this person in energy balance? If you have trouble remembering what energy balance is, review reading six.

 
 
 
 
 
 

  1. If this person eats like this every day, will their weight increase, decrease, or stay the same? If you have trouble remembering how to do is, review reading six.

  1. Sugar: Most people’s limit for added sugar is 50g. What’s the amount of added sugar in this diet?
