“Because Who Really Wants Any of That With Breakfast?” asks Nature’s Path

A reader wrote in asking for advice on label reading. Some of their questions included:

how do I know:

  • if this is a GMO food?
  • if this is organic?
  • what the difference is between natural or organic on a label?
  • if this is an eco-friendly product?

I love Nature’s Path Hemp Granola- they do an excellent job with their box packaging design. Not only did they reduce the size of their boxes (not less granola, less packaging), they use every square inch of it to educate about organics, GMOs, why not to use pesticides on food being grown… all of the healthy and ethical know-how everyday consumers need and want to understand while making their food choices.

Do you have a fave food that helps educate consumers with their packaging? Tell us your faves in the comments below!
