New food labels coming soon?

From the 6 December blog item at Public Health Perspective

A new labeling system proposed by the Institute of Medicine would make it easy for consumer to understand the nutrients in food. The front of food packages would feature a “stars system”, with zero to three stars for an item, based on the amount of trans fats, added sugars and sodium in the food.
