      Heres what i do-

      Go through 4-5 nutrients/minerals on the label and for each

      State if it is a good or bad source of the nutrient

      State the ingredient(s) which are the source of it(eg. the butter is a source of fat)

      The functions of the nutrient(eg. protein helps cells grow)

      Hope this helps!

      If it has a lot of it like in 2014 hl q.1 , Wholemeal bread is a very good source of carbohydrate (40.3g)
