Tell the FDA: Nutrition Label Updates are Long Overdue!
This petition had 11,150 supporters
For the first time in decades, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has proposed major updates to the ‘Nutrition Facts’ label we all see on our favorite foods and beverages. Now, the agency wants to know what the public thinks!
We’re rallying heart-smart consumers to speak-up in support of common-sense changes that will make it easier to compare products and make healthier choices. Make your voice heard now!
The food and beverage industries will be weighing in too, so we need to have strong consumer voices telling the FDA that we welcome changes on our grocery store shelves, including nutrition counts for more realistic portion sizes, prominent calorie information, and added sugar counts on all packaged foods.
With two-thirds of all adults in the nation overweight or obese, increasing their risk for high blood pressure, Type 2 diabetes, heart disease and stroke, it is critical that we continue to take steps to provide consumers with the information they need to make healthier choices. Submit your letter today to encourage the FDA to take this leap forward on ‘new and improved’ nutrition labels!
