An organization in the United Kingdom called the Royal Society for Public Health began to advocate the addition of an “activity equivalent” label on the nutrition facts of food. This means that next to the amount of calories there would be a part that says how long one would need to jog to burn off all of the calories in one serving. Do you think that this is a smart idea that could help people make healthy decisions, or do you think that this would be a useless feature to the nutrition facts label?

    I think this is an awesome idea! I’d love it if American labels had that. It would encourage me to work out more and burn the calories off from whatever I ate.

    I think this is a good idea that will maybe shed light to the bad eating habits many Americans have. It will give insight on the amount of daily exercise everyone should be getting.

    That’s so interesting! I think it would allow people to become more aware of what they’re eating. It would probably also help people not eat as much during one sitting. This would be a great addition to our labels!

    I love this idea! It’s one thing to just look at calories but to see how much you would have to do to work them off would be so cool. It just goes to show you what you’re really putting into your body.
