  • Easy-to-Read Smart Nutrition Labels – with Facts Up Front

Busy shoppers often don’t have the time to read all the labels on the food they are buying. Registered Dietitian Kimberly Kirchherr joins the Balancing Act to discuss Facts Up Front, a labeling system that provides key nutrition information on food products – right up front where consumers can see it.  The easy-to-read labels can help people make better food choices for themselves and their families. The labels show the number of calories and the amount of saturated fat, sodium and sugar, found in each serving; some labels may also highlight information about other good nutrients, such as fiber and calcium. Facts Up Front is a voluntary initiative led by the Grocery Manufacturers Association, which represents the nation’s leading food and beverage companies and the Food Marketing Institute which represents the nation’s leading retailers. Facts Up Front helps families build healthier diets. For more information and to access the online resources including videos, please visit: www.factsupfront.org
