Calories in bold print, added sugar amounts and realistic serving sizes may soon be portrayed on food labels aimed at fighting America’s obesity epidemic, First Lady Michelle Obama said Thursday. “This will be the new norm in providing consumers with information about the food we buy and eat,” Obama said at a White House event. The final format of what the First Lady described as the “label of the future” has not been formally decided upon, through two draft versions were unveiled at the White House. After that, the changes will likely take two years or more to implement, administration officials said.
Nutrition labels will be changing soon for the first time in decades!
