Checking ingredients

Close-up of a bowl of chicken vegetable soupUse the list of ingredients on food labels to help you get the most value for your money.  By law, ingredients have to be listed in decreasing order of quantity, with the largest ingredient listed first and the smallest ingredient listed lastSo chicken soup with chicken listed near the top of the ingredient list will have more chicken than a soup where it is listed third or fourth.  The ingredient list will also tell you what types of sugars, fats, fillers, and additives are in a product, so you can decide what’s best for you.  Read labels to get more for your money!
