“Clean” labels

I’m not sure packagers of holiday treats have caught on to the trend toward “clean” labels- foods with simplified or shorter lists of recognizable ingredients.

The holiday stollen that looked so healthy in the bakery dept – loaded with fruits and nuts – had a lengthy list of what appeared to be artificial colors, flavors and preservatives.

How can we teach kids to read food labels if they can’t even pronounce the ingredients?
