New nutrition labels

Consumer advocacy group Center for Science in the Public Interest has proposed a redesign to nutrition labels on packaging. Changes include larger type for calories and serving size, easier to read ingredients list, and display the amount of whole grains.  (Full details at the New York Times) While surely there are some good features to this design — I’m a fan of easier to read ingredients, myself — what would be even better than a new nutrition labels would be people thinking about what they’re eating, checking ingredients not calories, and eating more foods like fresh fruits and veggies that don’t have nutrition labels.
