Rate Your Plate!

Want to know if the whole grain cereal you are eating is actually healthy [just as an aside, if it doesn’t say 100% whole grain it only has to be 55% whole grain]? If that granola bar is better than a candy bar? If that yogurt is chock full of sugar? While each food decision that you make does not have to be a perfect one, the Environmental Working Group or EWG food tracker website can help to keep you informed about your decisions. The EWG rates foods based on nutrient concerns, ingredient concerns and processing concerns. Scores are based on a scale of 1 to 10 with 1 being the best and 10 being the worst.

Here’s quick snap shot of a few searches.
