Did You Know?
Daily Values have been established by the Food
and Drug Administration as references to help consumers use information on food labels to plan a healthy overall diet. The Daily Values provide a
reliable guide for most people. It is helpful to know that a 2,000-calorie level is about right for moderately active women, teenage girls, and
sedentary men, and 2,500 calories is the target level
for many men, teenage boys, and active women.

Many older adults, children, and sedentary women need fewer than 2,000 calories a day and may want to select target levels based on 1,600 calories a day. Some active men and teenage boys and very active
women may want to select target levels based on 2,800 calories per day. The Daily Values for sodium and cholesterol are the same for everyone, regardless of total calories consumed, so you do not have to make adjustments based on your caloric needs.
