Proposed food label changes

health canadaMajor changes are coming to labels for all packaged foods sold in Canada. Health Canada’s Food Directorate is proposing changes based on feedback from Canadian parents and consumers during the 2013 consultation on how best to provide nutrition information. Among the many proposed changes are: different vitamins and minerals required in the Nutrition Facts panel; new guidelines on serving sizes; new formats for nutritional facts and other information; and changing the way sugar content is presented. The online consultation period runs until September 12. Contact Stephanie Wells at COTA for more information on how to participate.
