My Dream Food Label

My Dream Food Label was just published in New York Times by Mark Bittman. Mark Bittman is an Op-Ed Lead Food columnist at the NY Times.

He has just proposed a new Food Label:

I totally agree with him on the subject of food labels. Food label NEEDs to be changed. Obesity in this wealthy country (USA) means we are doing something wrong.

I really applaud Mark Bittman on writing this article and suggesting a change in food labels.

According to him “I want something that allows me to make a fast but enlightened choice.” I like his suggestions for food labels by numbers and colors. Our Nutrition facts are displayed in a way that are confusing and over informative at times. We need a simple system to cut down on confusion over the nutritional value of the food we eat.
