Understanding daily value is key: Daily value (DV) is the amount of each nutrient (and fiber) an adult would want to shoot for in a day, based on a 2,000-calorie plan. (For the purpose of learning to use food labels, you can pretend to be an adult.) It’s based on percentages. One hundred percent in a day covers it for each category.

When you want to increase a nutrient or dietary fiber, go for foods with a DV of 20 percent or higher per serving.

When you want to limit somethinglike saturated fat, cholesterol, and sodiumgo for foods that have 5 percent or less DV per serving.
