VIDEO Learn About the Clinton Foundation Work with Chef Lorena Garcia

Fighting childhood obesity will take all hands on deck, see what the Clinton Foundation is doing.
How can you help? I want to teach all folks how to correctly read food labels. It is much trickier than you may think.
This is definitely an important cause. Now if I can bring to Clinton's attention this: Learning how to read food labels is very important BUT I am finding many have errors. For example, how can a Thomas English muffin with enriched wheat flour as the #1 ingredient have 5 grams of fiber per serving size listed but another Thomas English muffin of the same weight in grams state whole wheat flour as the #1 ingredient but only has 3 grams of fiber in equal serving size? This example is not due to one company trying to outdo the other. When 2 companies are compared I have observed even more errors. How can this be? Aren't these food labels required to be accurate?
