5:36 am
10% maybe we can meet all of our nutrient needs within our calorie needs. laura, let me turn back to you. the government has added sugars in its fda guidelines and mandatin the compa change their nutrition labels specifical are they doing enough? >> i think it's an absolute watershed event that we now have a dietary guideline for sugar. it's going to be on the back. label that we've been needing one. we've had one for sodium, for salt forever. its people's choices and in terms of their food choices. it's an important step. however, i think we've got a long way to go, and the next step is really going to be to address are the federal food programs. those federal food programs, the national school lunch program considers ketchup to be a vegetable. we have big problem with our
