Confused about all the health jargon around food labeling? What does it all mean for your family? We are breaking down these barriers for all Babyology readers – join our exclusive Facebook live chat session with nutritionist Anne-Marie Mackintosh and receive advice and reassurance on selecting the right foods based on your family’s specific needs.
Let’s face it, we all experience doubts about our family’s diet and one stage or another. Babyology, together with Uncle Tobys, are excited to introduce Anne-Marie Mackintosh, nutrition manager, food supply advocate and Dietitians Association of Australia member. She will be available to answer all questions regarding diet, nutrition, food labelling and making healthy food choices for your family.
Join our exclusive chat on Friday, 17 April 2015 at 7pm through our Facebook page.
With a family, the days can start early. We consider 6am a sleep-in in our household and so choosing the right foods to start the day is essential. We all know that breakfast is the most important part of the day, but the facts surrounding which breakfast foods are best are often contradictory.
Anne-Marie Mackintosh is here to make sense of it all. She comes with 20 years of experience in the food industry and is a trusted name in nutritional benchmark development.
However, in the meantime, let us help simplify it for you. It’s all in the stars. The Health Star Rating is a guide to help parents understand the nutritional content at a glance. The more stars, the more nutritious the product. Criteria used to choose the star rating are based on energy (kilojoules), risk nutrients (saturated fat, salt and sugars) and positive nutrients (dietary fibre, protein, and the proportion of fruit, vegetable, nut and legume content).
So how do some of your favourite breakfast foods stack up? Uncle Tobys is a consistent leader when it comes to dishing healthy breakfast choices. In fact, all of their cereals come with a 3.5 or higher star rating (out of 5), including the always popular Vita Brits Weeties which has a 4.5 star rating and the five-star Uncle Tobys Oats Quick. Good news for oat-obsessed little ones (like my two)!
If you have ever had concerns about whether you are choosing the right foods for your family, then this live chat session is not to be missed! Gain confidence, reassurance and tips on providing the best start for your gang.
