WHAT DO COLORED CIRCLES ON FOOD PACKAGES MEAN?
Colored circles on food packages are a form of labeling that indicate the nutritional value of the product.
The circles are usually found on the front of the package and are color-coded to represent different levels of nutrition.
Green circles indicate that the product is a healthy choice and is low in fat, sugar, and calories.
Yellow circles indicate that the product is moderately healthy and may contain some fat, sugar, or calories.
Red circles indicate that the product is high in fat, sugar, or calories and should be consumed in moderation.
The circles are not regulated by the FDA, but are a voluntary labeling system used by some food manufacturers.
It is important to read the nutrition and ingredient labels on food packages in addition to the colored circles to make informed decisions about what you eat.
