South Dakota dietician Charlotte Rommereim

Understanding Food Labels

A trip to the grocery store today can be confusing. Natural, organic, hormone-free, grass-fed: All these labels can get overwhelming. How do you know you’re buying the healthiest food for your family?

We asked local South Dakota dietician Charlotte Rommereim, RD how to keep all those labels straight. Her best advice? Look on the back of the packaging because that’s where all the nutrition information lives. The rest is just marketing.
