What will be the Front-of-Package Nutrition Symbol? Your opinion matters!

Poor diets – including those that are high in sodium, sugars, or saturated fat – are a primary risk factor for diseases such as cancer, stroke, type 2 diabetes, and heart disease. In Canada, however, 60% of the foods we buy are processed and packaged. Many of these foods are high in sugars, sodium and saturated fat. 

A Front-of-Package Symbol will provide a clear visual cue that a food is high in nutrients of public health concern, such as sodium, sugars, or saturated fat.
