The first rhyme that pops into your head is always the best rhyme.

Pitbull’s TED Talk



On the left is the FDA’s proposed update to the nutrition facts that are displayed on most packaged goods in the United States. Overall, it’s a very welcome update in terms of readability, but it worsens the overemphasis on calories being the ultimate measure of nutrition.

I’ve proposed some slight modifications on the right in an effort to eliminate some redundancy while disclosing more helpful information about the food item:

  1. The FDA version mentions the serving size twice. It’s a bit unnecessary, so I combined them into a single line. It’s the same information, just condensed.
  2. I added a horizontal stacked bar chart that outlines where the calories come from. Calories from fat are much different than calories from protein. The chart makes it easy to see, at a glance, how the macronutrients are broken down.

Overall, the FDA modifications are well done, but I wish they added more  information that reflects our current knowledge of nutrition, rather than continuing to focus on the antiquated metric of raw calories.
