Make food labels required reading

Food labels can help you learn important information about what you're eating, including the calorie count and sodium content. Knowing how to read food labels is especially important if you have a health condition, such as high blood pressure, and need to follow a special diet. It also makes it easier to compare similar foods to see which is healthier.
