First of all, what is an RDA? RDA simply stands for Recommended Dietary Allowance – it’s the amount of nutrients your body needs to stay healthy. We all see this information on the ingredients of the food we buy, but how many of us actually tally up the amounts of carbohydrates, fat and protein we are consuming each day?
Below is an infographic we’ve created that breaks down the meaning of RDA and shows you how to calculate the specific carbohydrates, protein, and fats your body needs each day.
To calculate your RDA of carbohydrates, protein and fats, you first need to establish how many calories you need to consume per day. According to the NHS, the average calories a man needs each day for a healthy balanced diet is 2500Kcal, and 2000Kcal a day for women.
As well as making oats more awesome, here are MOMA we want to make sure that all you oat lovers out there are starting your day with a healthy breakfast. If you want to start monitoring your RDA intake, take a look below at the nutritional values of some of our oatie breakfast products below.
