The serving size (in bold type) for soft drinks, ice cream, bagels, cereal, and other foods has been increased to better reflect what people eat in one sitting. For packages that hold between one and two servings, the nutrition information must now be presented for the entire package. If the package holds between two and three servings but they could be eaten in one sitting—such as a pint of ice cream—the label must show nutrition info for one serving and the whole package.
CR’s insight: By law, serving sizes are based on the amount that people typically consume, but that doesn’t mean you should eat that much. For less-than-healthy foods, keep portions on the smaller side.
