Calorie-counting poster ideal for health classes

With all the information out there on how overweight our country is, anything that helps point out the nutritional value of food is handy. Into this comes a poster, easy to read and brightly photographed, looking at food pitfalls many people may not be aware of.

Dips and sauces complement a variety of foods served at almost every meal. An easy way to reduce calories is by choosing low-calorie alternatives. The Dips and Sauces Poster by Learning ZoneXpress highlights great tasting, low-calorie choices to common high-calorie dressings, sauces and dips.

This poster features eight foods and provides calorie comparisons to the dips and sauces often served with them.

Ordering nachos? Opt for salsa or guacamole on the side instead of higher calorie choices such as cheese dip or sour cream.

Reaching for a bagel or toast in the morning? Try low-sugar jam instead of cream cheese.
How about chicken nuggets or chicken strips? Ketchup or barbecue sauce is a great low-calorie alternative to ranch dressing.

Compare the calories in the dips and sauces in your next meal to find the healthiest option.
