Imagine Physical Activity on the Food Label

IHRSA is a featured contributor on "Be Active Your Way", the official blog of the Health and Human Services Department, a blog that showcases the contributions that physical activity in general, and IHRSA members in particular make to America's health. 

This month's post on the benefits of adding physical activity to food labels is written by Alex Black, IHRSA's Health Promotion manager.

"It’s actually very difficult for a lot of people to quantify calorie information. Alas, 200 calories looks so innocent on that label until you realize you just wasted 10% of your calorie budget on 12 tortilla chips", Black writes.
