Change is coming for Nutrition Labels on food items.  America has not updated food labels in twenty years, and the food industry could have have two years to implement these proposed changes.  Still, progress is being made!

Updates include:

  • more realistic ‘serving size’ quantities
  • clear emphasis on sugar content
  • larger print total Calorie count
  • required listing of Vitamin D content
