Carbon vs Calories

Posted 10 November 2008 by Jacob Malthouse to Opinion.

For years, the food industry has been listing the nutritional information of packaged food. Things like vitamin content, calories, minerals, sugar, salt, etc. Now the ‘Smart Choices Program’ has come up with a way to make it easier for consumers to make smart nutrition choices.

It’s simple: The labels will have two parts. First, there will be a green check markand the “Smart Choices Program” label for foods that meet certainnutritional requirements within some categories. The other parthighlights the calories per serving and the servings per container.

Woudn’t it be cool to add a ‘Green choices’ program to to this? Maybe we can get the Smart choices guys to give us back our colour : )
