Health Canada is reviewing the nutritional information it requires on food packaging sold in this country. Part of that work includes weighing suggestions coming out of the States. Changes that include increasing our daily fibre and reducing our sodium intake. The US is proposing changing nutrition labels on food. Suggestions include listing added sugars, and updating serving sizes to reflect the amounts people are actually eating.
Laura Chapin ran the ideas by registered dietician Roxanne Laughlin. She runs a private practice and teaches at the University.
