New food label plan to fight US obesity

Food manufacturers, under new proposal, would feature nutritional information more prominently.

    In the United States, the fight against obesity is about to target food labelling and packaging.

    It is the first shake-up of its kind in the US in 20 years, and has the backing of the First Lady Michelle Obama.
