This informative and completely updated chart covers all the major topics for good nutrition and health. It contains excellent descriptions of fats, types of cholesterol, carbohydrates (including the Glycemic Index), protein, and fiber. A table of the benefits and sources of vitamins for various life stages is included.
The chart provides visual comparisons of portion sizes of food with other common items (e.g., a cup of pasta is about the size of a tennis ball). Other features include a step-by-step guide on how to read a food label and information on the latest food pyramid.
Unmounted - Printed on high-quality heavy paper appropriate for framing. (Note: Unmounted charts cannot be displayed on the chart stands.)
Laminated - Printed on high-quality paper with flexible 1.5 mil plastic lamination. Metal eyelets in each top corner for convenient wall hanging or for use with chart stands. Lamination also makes the chart "markable" allowing write-on / wipe-off. Easily rolls up for portability. This is the most popular mounting.
