More -- yes, more! -- on those healthy-choice labels at the grocery store

If you're waiting with bated breath for all those new healthful-food-scoring schemes to hit the grocery stores, you may be interested in a chart of existing and upcoming rating systems compiled by the Fooducate blog. It's a pretty useful resource.

The situation is, as the blog terms it, a veritable "tower of Babel."

(By the way, if all the fields of the chart don't show up when you click on the link, copying and pasting the content into a blank document seems to do the trick, for reasons that I do not understand.)
