What are Guideline Daily Amounts?
Guideline Daily Amounts (GDAs) are guidelines for healthy adults and children about the approximate amount of Calories, fat, saturated fat, carbohydrate, total sugars, protein, fibre, salt and sodium required for a healthy diet.
GDAs provide companies with a consistent approach to nutrition labelling. They give consumers additional information which they can use to gain a better understanding of their daily intake of specific nutrients.
GDAs are not targets for individuals to consume, but a guideline or benchmark to help them make dietary choices and balance their daily intake. For example, consumers can use them as a basis against which to judge the contribution of fat made by a particular food product to their diet.
Therefore when I was offered the Nakd bars to try I knew they would be put to good use; from J taking one to school as a healthy change from a sausage butty: to a boast after he was put through his paces at rugby.. The Nakd bars are different as they are 100% natural ingredients, they are wheat, dairy and gluten free and are full of goodness. The bars come in seven flavours Cocoa Delight, Cocoa Mint and the award winning* Cocoa Orange. Or try something a little fruitier with Berry Delight, which combines raw dates and cashews with raisins, raspberries and natural berry flavouring. Alternatively discover the delicious flavours of Cashew Cookie, Ginger Bread or Pecan Pie. Go on I can't resist saying "mmmmmm pie' and no I am not a simpson character!
