Our nutritionist Dani takes us through why she believes it is important to be able to read food labels correctly.

But being able to read a food label, I believe is important and so helpful when you’re starting your health journey.

Do you find yourself craving a sweet treat after every meal, or at specific times of the day? Sugar cravings are extremely common and usually be explained by simple factors. However, some sugar cravings are a result of an underlying nutrient deficiency.
