We've made a lot of fantastic free nutrition handouts over the years. I was just looking over our site stats, and I was overwhelmed by the amazing positive response that these particular nutrition materials have earned.
That's why I'm going to share the top 10 printable nutrition handouts that have gotten the most rave reviews over the past year.
Let's get started!
The most popular free handout from the past year was the Sweetener Chart, hands down. This chart explored a variety of aspects of 10 top sweeteners, examining the serving size, calories per serving, sweetness levels, and best uses for everything from honey to acesulfame potassium. Here's a copy of the sweetener comparison chart, which you can print and use as you see fit!
The next handout from the list was a part of the MyPlate Exploration series. This post, MyPlate Exploration: Red and Orange Vegetables, featured an examination of the vegetables that are part of the red and orange subcategory of MyPlate's vegetable food group. This post outlines which vegetables belong to that group, what nutrients they contain, which health benefits are associated with said nutrients, and ways to fit red and orange vegetables into a healthy eating pattern. The printable handout that made its debut in that post features its highlights. Get your copy today!
The next in line comes from Cheese 101, which discusses exactly what you might expect. The free cheese chart quickly became a fan favorite, comparing the calories, total fat, saturated fat, cholesterol, sodium, protein, and calcium content of 13 different cheeses on one handy page! This printable nutrition chart makes a perfect addition to any health fair booth, cooking demonstration, or presentation.
Speaking of sodium, another popular nutrition handout comes from the post Sodium and the American Diet. After an exploration of the top sources of sodium in typical American eating patterns, the post reveals a chart of high-sodium foods and their ranges of sodium content. It's a perfect resource for consultations and shopping discussions.
And, as the final installment of today's free handout collection, I present the cooking substitution guide from the post Free Cooking Substitution Infographic! This handout offers a fantastic look at tried-and-true cooking substitutions that can help people make any dish healthier, anytime. Take a look and see for yourself!
