Highlights from the proposed updates to the US nutritional label

  • Calorie content given in bigger font
  • Serving size more realistic. A pint of ice cream goes from four servings to two
  • Items that could be consumed in one sitting, such as a 20oz (0.56l) soft drink, must give nutrition for both suggested serving sizes and total package size
  • Potassium and Vitamin D levels listed
