Tips from Big Y:

  • Two simple steps to cutting out unneeded calories from the foods you eat are minimizing the amount of excess added sugar and solid fat found in the foods you buy.
    Label reading can be a bit tricky when it comes to watching out for these two attributes-How much solid fat is too much? How can you tell if the sugar listed is added or naturally occurring?
  • At Big Y, the NuVal Scoring System is available to help you work toward your weight management goals- simply trade up to higher scoring foods and you'll find options with less added sugars and solid fats.
