WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Food and Drug Administration is proposing new rules on nutrition labels, the first type of move in nearly 20 years.

The proposed changes include changing the serving size and updating the recommended daily guidelines for various nutrients.

The new rules will make it clearer for Americans to know how many calories they are consuming.

The labeling will also take into account how some foods are consumed in one sitting. For example, the serving sizes for a bottle of soda will increase from 8 ounces to 12 ounces; and the serving size for ice cream will increase from 1/2 cup to 1 cup.
