With health a growing concern in the United States of America, it is only natural that authorities in the industry have decided that much has to be blamed on the poor amount of information provided to the public; the updated FDA-Proposed Nutrition Fact Labels hopes to change that. It has been revamped to be easier to understand as well as give pertinent information in place of misleading information.

For instance, the FDA-Proposed Nutrition Fact Labels does away with the 'calories from fat' column and introduces a column for 'added sugars' in its place. Important information such as calories and servings are made larger as well. First lady Michelle Obama states, "Our guiding principle here is very simple: that you as a parent and a consumer should be able to walk into your local grocery store, pick up an item off the shelf, and be able to tell whether it’s good for your family."
