|WHAT ARE YOU EATING?
The government has created guidelines for how much of various nutrients, vitamins, and minerals a person should eat or drink each day to be healthy. These guidelines are then used to create labels like the one shown above to inform the public about the nutritional content of food.
According to the sample label above, one serving of Cheesy Mac macaroni and cheese contains 15% of the recommended daily amount of saturated fat that a person should eat. Nutritionists recommend that a person should have no more than a certain amount of saturated fat each day. One serving of Cheesy Mac has 3 grams (3g) of saturated fat. How many grams of saturated fat should a person eat in one day?
Your Task: With your team, determine how many grams of saturated fat a person should eat each day. Look for more than one way to solve the problem and be ready to explain your reasoning. [answer]
