Choose a food item that you ordinarily consume, and analyze the Nutrition Facts Panel (including the ingredients) to determine its nutritional quality [see the “Tools of a Healthy Diet” lecture]. Based on your analysis, decide whether this is a healthy choice or not. If you decide that this is not a nutritious food, could you recommend a substitute in your diet? This should be a 1-page report (max), submitted to the assignment Make sure to include a copy of this food’s Nutrition Facts Panel (including ingredients). If you are unable to attach the label electronically, you can send me a typed version of the label along with your report.

For this assignment, do not just regurgitate the nutrition facts label of your product (i.e. “this product has 100 calories and 5% of vitamin A). That can simply be read off the label itself. When completing this assignment, ask yourself:
