FDA proposing new nutrition guidelines to show Americans how much they are really eating
WASHINGTON – For the first time in about 20 years, nutrition labels will be getting a makeover.
According to the proposal from the Food and Drug Administration, new rules would include changing the serving size and updating the recommended daily guidelines for various nutrients.
The new rules are redesigned to make it clearer for Americans to know how many calories they are eating.
The labeling will also take into account how some foods are eaten in one sitting.
Officials said the new rules would go into effect two years after they are finalized.
