FDA Proposes Altering Nutrition Labels

American VoicesOpinion ISSUE 50•08 Feb 27, 2014

The FDA is proposing significant changes to nutrition labels on food packaging, such as emphasizing calorie count by visually enlarging that number and recalculating portion sizes to more accurately reflect how much people eat in one serving. What do you think?

  • “Wouldn’t it be easier if they just added an exclamation mark after the number of calories?”

  • “Ooh, if they change the serving portions from three down to one, that’ll leave extra room for dessert.”

  • “Perfect. If I see the calorie count in bigger type, I’ll definitely avoid all the food I can’t stop eating.”
