Whether you’re picking up ingredients to make holiday treats with your kids, grandkids, or friends, or choosing a small indulgence for yourself, a label can help make your decision easier.
Nutrition labels on packaged foods, including candy, list the food’s ingredients and nutrition information. These labels can help you decide which goodies to choose.
Soon, the confectionery industry voluntarily will put labels showing calorie counts on the front of wrappers. They will look similar to labels you see on other kinds of food and will be simple and easy to understand. Because these labels will clearly show calories, they can help you in your efforts to eat candy in moderation.
