We’re building healthier diets with smart nutrition labels! Registered Dietitian– Kimberly Kirchherr joins us to discuss Facts Up Front.

It shows the number of calories and the amount of saturated fat, sodium and sugar, found in each serving. It may also highlight good nutrients such as fiber and calcium.
