It is important for the HFP to understand the most prominent current food controversies to help clients make better, healthier food choices. A big step in helping clients sort through these issues it is recommended that the HFP teach clients how to read food labels and identify products that may sound healthy, but which may have made tradeoffs that, in fact, result in unhealthy food choices.
