Each healthy, delicious, prepared meal from Homestyle Direct meets the one-third RDI. Why is that so important?
Health professionals and state agencies agree that the relationship between diet and health is important. Our eating habits can help or hurt our overall health and well-being. Good eating habits include being a smart shopper and selecting foods that reflect the Dietary Guidelines for Americans.
The % Daily Value allows us to determine the nutrient contribution of that particular food or beverage relative to a 2,000 calorie per day diet. Not everyone consumes exactly 2,000 calories each day. That number was established as the average reference intake of Americans. Factors that contribute to energy needs include gender, age, and activity level. Therefore, it is important to establish your individual energy needs and make adjustments accordingly to fit your personal “% Daily Value.”
Each of our nutritionally balanced meals means that the ratios of all the main nutrients in a food or meal are in balance and proportional to the levels of each that we need on a daily basis. The protein, complex carbohydrates, sugars, dietary fiber, fats, and key vitamins and minerals are present in each one of our meals. Each component of all of our entrees is carefully selected to create a perfect balance with one another and in proportion to the Recommended Daily Intake (RDI) of each of these nutrients.
Our mission is to enrich the lives of the people we serve-in body, mind, and spirit
