BRUNSWICK — What does it really imply if products are listed as all-natural or gluten-free? Which part of the label should consumers review first? What is the appropriate amount of beneficial nutrients?
Understanding food labels is an essential part of getting the safest and healthiest food possible, and an upcoming “Lunch and Learn For Your Health” lecture will offer important information on nutrition basics and making healthy choices.
Dr. Melinda Peterlin, a board-certified pediatrician with Southeast Georgia Physician Associates-St. Simons Pediatrics, will present “The Truth Behind Food Labels” from noon-1 p.m. Jan. 28 at the Golden Isles YMCA.
Cracker Barrel will provide a free lunch for attendees.
Seating is limited, and preregistration is required by calling the YMCA at 912-265-4100.
The lecture series is on the last Wednesday of each month at the Golden Isles YMCA, which is at 144 Scranton Connector in Brunswick.
