Teton Family Magazine Food Labels Article Sources

June 9, 2012

The Summer Edition of Teton Family Magazine will be hitting the valley soon. I was tasked this time with looking at food labels….specifically, which ones are meaningful and which ones are snot worth the packaging they are printed on. I did a ton of research for this piece and found many fascinating articles and one amazing speech. I found so much material that I could have written 5 different articles. The magazine is not big enough for me to list all these sources with the article, so here they are.
