Nutrition Labels Get a Makeover, CNN.com

Are you one of the many people that get confused over how to read a nutrition label? If so, help may be on the way! The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is proposing to change the way nutrition labels look. If approved, the new labels will focus more on total calories, added sugars and certain nutrients. The FDA is also hoping to change the serving size requirements to reflect what people usually eat and drink. For example, “if you buy a 20-ounce soda, you’re probably not going to stop drinking at the 8-ounce mark. The new rules would require that entire soda bottle to be one serving size — making calorie counting simpler” (cnn.com). To read the full article, please visit:
