Nutrient Bar Graph Cards
The following abstract describes a publication that is only available for purchase.
This publication includes cards for more than 40 different foods. Each card, printed on 8 ½ × 11 in. cardstock, includes a large colorful bar graph that displays the percent daily value for many of the nutrients found in each food. This allows for quick comparison of nutrient density. Nutrients listed include calories, total fat, saturated fat, carbohydrates, protein, calcium, potassium, iron, and vitamins A, C, and D. These cards are designed to be used alongside food model cards from the National Dairy Council in our Show Me Nutrition curriculum. The cards can also be used on their own to supplement other nutrition education for youth and adults.
