Government of Canada Proposes Changes to Nutrition Information on Food Labels

Health Canada launched a series of online public consultations on proposed changes that will improve the way nutrition information is presented on labels. The proposed label changes, such as including potassium on the nutrition facts table, reflect feedback received by Health Canada from parents and consumers during round table sessions and an online consultation in the winter 2014.
