Checking the nutrition label is a good way to compare products, make healthier choices and eat a balanced diet. Red, amber and green colours show at a glance whether a product is high, medium or low for fat, saturates, sugars or salt.

When it comes to portions, check the pack for the portion size, this is what the numbers on the nutrition label are based on.

For your daily allowance, Reference Intake (RI) has replaced the term Guideline Daily Amount or GDA. The numbers on the label show you how many calories and how much fat, saturates, sugars and salt a portion of food or drink contains, both in number of grams and as a share (%) of your daily allowance (RI).

Aim to stay below 100% of your daily allowance (RI) for calories, fat, saturates, sugars and salt when you add up everything you consume in a day.

To make the choice that is right for you, use the calorie information to compare products. Check the pack for the number of calories there are in a portion and 100g of a food or 100ml of drink.
