Nutrition is in the headlines just about everyday; “How to lose weight,” “Super foods,” “New food fights cancer?” well now it’s about my beloved food labels!

In addition, in the past year I have also spent time working as a nutritionist, analyzing nutrition information for a research facility up North; throughout this experience (and personal experience for that matter) I have found that having the nutrition information at point-of-sale makes an impact on the dietary choices consumers make at meal times.
