Serving Sizes On Labels May Be Culprit That Abets Obesity

According to the news at Examiner, the portion or serving size on food packaging labels are so small as to be unrealistic.

The FDA is now looking to offer a reality check by increasing serving sizes on food labels, in a bid to reduce obesity levels in the country.

The FDA therefore is looking to encourage manufacturers to post vital nutritional information, including calorie counts, on the front of food packages.

When you read X calories per serving you relax, but that serving is unrealistically small so as to be misleading. In short, anyone is likely to eat a much larger portion that is suggested on the pack. It is therefore thought that nutritional information such as calorie counts need to be revised so that people get a bigger dose of reality.
