It would be a really good idea to use the nutrition tracker and make sure you are getting in the basics. I do think if I hit all the recommended suggestions, then I'm on the right track.
For me a really important part of the label is the serving size. I don't know how many times I have been at a meeting with snacks and found a small bag of granola and looked at the calories and thought - Good choice! and then looked more carefully and learned that it was 2 servings and a 350 calorie treat.
The next big factor for me is the ingredients. If there is a huge paragraph, I'm not interested. if i make corn with butter at home, I use corn and butter. The corn is simply corn and the butter is cream and salt. If I were to buy it premade, check out the ingredients: http://greengiant.com/pages/ProductDetail.aspx?ProductID=3
I also look at sodium and purchase unsalted or low salt.
I find looking at those few things helps me determine if something is worth buying.
