An easier approach to achieving a balanced diet.
Daily Intakes (DIs) are a set of reference values for a variety of nutrients plus energy. These nutrients include carbohydrates, sugars, fat, saturated fat, protein and sodium.
The DI values are based on an average adult diet of 8700kJ, which is the daily energy requirement for an average adult. Different nutrients (protein, carbohydrate, fat and fibre) contribute differing amounts of energy to the diet and for good health, you need to get a balance of these nutrients.
It is important to remember that DIs are not recommendations, they simply provide a benchmark suitable for the majority of people. Energy intakes vary from person to person depending on their age, height, weight, gender and level of physical activity. Very active people may have higher energy requirements, while younger children may have lower requirements.
% DI is a simple way to learn more about how to get a balance of nutrients and energy into your day. The DI guide on our packs, shows you what is in one serving of a Kellogg product and what it contributes to your daily diet.
The DI values are calculated to achieve an energy intake of 8700kJ in a day, which is the energy required for an average adult.
