Item: CIFJ10113

Description

Read about the new study that reviewed calorie counts listed in restaurants. It was found that several foods in national chain restaurants contain more calories than listed, and surprisingly, calorie listings for items often viewed as the healthier choices—such as salads and soups—tend to be more unreliable in both sit-down and fast-food restaurants. Read the results of a recent survey that revealed a significant percentage of consumers seem confused about what constitutes a proper serving size of certain packaged foods. Discover what minerals and micronutrients can help your bones, muscles and immunities. So much valuable information in one continuing education quiz that will help you and your clients. Knowledge really is power. Educate yourself!
