Nutrition labels on packages of food and drinks include standardized nutrition facts and often also standardized nutrition recommendations.
Nutrition labels are difficult to understand for many, especially children, and do not lend themselves to quick comparisons, especially when no nutrition recommendations are included. If included, these recommendations are only based on the standardized daily diet of an average woman with a daily calorie requirement of 2,000 kcal. Because the nutrition recommendations are only for this specific average woman, they can lead to health risks for us. Due to the standardized nutrition recommendations, people with lower calorie requirements may eat and drink too much and people with higher calorie requirements may eat and drink not enough. Especially people suffering from overweight tend to underestimate the consumption of foods with a high calorie content and thus, their own energy supply.
Because requirements of calories and nutrients are different for all people, standardized recommendations on nutrition labels are not intended as targets.
