Why CHOP5 Salad Dressings Are Better!

by Taylor Smith, CHOP5 Wellness Blogger

Do you look at the nutritional labels on food items you buy at the grocery store? If so, do you look at it for every item or just some? What about salad dressing? Or do you just assume it “must be healthy” if it’s going on a salad, which is known to be a healthy option? It’s important to be aware of the nutritional labels on salad dressings, not just for the calories, but for the ingredients that are in them. If you are someone who wants to maintain or lose weight or someone who strives to put only quality ingredients into your body, this article is for you!
