She can shove her woman are too stupid to read a darn label where the sun does not reach.
Highlights of the proposal include:
Calorie content and serving sizes would be featured more prominently to help address obesity, "one of the most important public health problems facing our country," Taylor said. "What and how much people eat and drink has changed since the serving sizes were first put in place in 1994," the agency said. Also, foods that can be consumed in one sitting would feature calorie and nutrition information for the whole package.
Labels would need to show the amount of "added sugars" in a food product to help people distinguish between the natural sugars found in fruit and milk, for instance, and sugars added arbitrarily. Americans consume too much sugar and need to reduce their intake, according to 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans.
Potassium and vitamin D -- nutrients that help ward off high blood pressure and bone loss, respectively -- would be listed on labels. Food makers could also include vitamins A and C, but they will no longer have to.
"Daily values" for various nutrients such as salt, dietary fiber and vitamin D would be revised. These values are used to calculate the "Percent Daily Value" on the label, which helps consumers understand the nutrition information in the context of a total daily diet, the FDA said.
"Total Fat," "Saturated Fat" and "Trans Fat" would remain on labels, but not "Calories from Fat." It's now known the type of fat is more important than the amount.

The only confusing dilemma the average shopper goes through is having to stand in aisles knowing and wishing they could buy organic but not being able to afford them.
The only confusion I have is how to stretch a shrinking dollar to cover an inflating cost of living. Try buying whole foods with the same budget you had a couple years ago when all the food does is get more expensive.
Then people shouldn't have a problem with slapping a label on the US government then:
Contains nothing but hyperbole, and vitriol.
Likes to ban stuff that is bad for people.
Likes to spend buckets loads of cash, and never have anything to show for it.
Likes to create 'Wars' for everything that is ''hazardous' to the people.
Can never do anything wrong.
Hell lets slap label on the Governmentedit on 1-3-2014 by neo96 because: (no reason given)
That is not what she said and her comments are being taken completely out of context.
that the women of the country are 'defeated' when shopping because they are clueless idiots and can't figure out what is good for them and what isn't
