Clare: Understanding Food Labels
May 19, 2015 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm
The Clare Branch of Diabetes Ireland are holding an information evening on ‘understanding food labels’.
We hope that by attending this session people will learn to more easily interpret nutritional information and food labels, and ultimately better the dietary management of their diabetes” says Pauline Dunne, dietitian with Diabetes Ireland.
Self-care is an essential part of good diabetes care! To do this well continuously over a long period of time is not easy and reinforcing of good diabetes management tips and advice is needed regularly.
At first glance food labels are not always easy to understand. There is often confusion between the terms ‘carbohydrates’ and ‘sugars’ with most people only considering sugars to be important. However, both sugars and the amount of total carbohydrate need to be considered by people with diabetes when making food choices.
This meeting is free to attend. The Clare Diabetes Support Groups can be contacted on telephone number 087 641 5747 or [email protected].
