An account of the estimated amount of sodium, saturated fat and added sugars which is included in typical meals in the USA is depicted in the given pie charts.
Overall, it is obvious that all three nutrients are seen consumed in comparatively lesser amounts at breakfast.
In case of the intake of sodium and saturated fat, most consumption is recorded at dinner. Out of the total sodium intake of an average American, 43% is during dinner. Roughly around 37% of saturated fat is ingested during this time from its aggregate proportion of consumption. However, most added sugar is taken with snacks, and this accounts for just over two-fifth (42%) of its total consumption. At the same time, approximately 23% of sugar is taken with dinner.
The proportions of sodium, fat and sugar intake at lunch are 29, 26 and 19 respectively. Just over a fifth of the total fat consumption is seen with snacks, which is also a notable figure. However, the average consumption of all this three nutrients falls between 14 and 16% during breakfast, which is not seen as unhealthy.
