rounds" with cbs news contributors dr. holly phillips and dr. tara na lieu from lenox hospital in new york. first of all, food labels could change the way you eat. the fda is considering changing serving sizes of nutrition labels for the first time in 20 years. a 20-ounce bottle of soda is counting as two servings but they may change it to one serving. same with the can. what are they try dog. >> >> they're trying to give the label as new makeover. they're base oddtown 1970s and 1980s. they have not been updated since the 1990s. so what we're trying to do is make them more realistic and make them easier. serving size is supposed to represent the typical amount that you eat. as you mentioned for a soda, most people drink the whole bottle, so that would represent one serving going forward in the
7:39 am
future. similarly with a point of ice cream, most people don't eat a half a cup, which is the current serving size. they eat a cup. those are some of the changes. in addition the packages that have 2 to 4 servings would event eventually be broken down into two columns, per serving and per package. >> that's something. i always calculate. do they think that that will make people eat less, eat more? >> these new labels may have the effect, meaning people may see it as an endorsement to eat more, not less. people were shown a family size which were larger. that caused them to orders 43% sizes. getting used to.
7:40 am
remember you have to remember. serving sizes are not recommended portions, right? they represent more what we typically eat but not what we should eat. we'll just have to focus on that. >> is this a done deal, tara? do we know this is going to happen now? >> the fda is reviewing public commentary. if they decide to do this, manufacturers will have two years to make the changes and we expect about 17% of packaged foods would have to undergo some changes to their labeling. next up, new advise for peanut allergies. recommend that infants at high risk for allergies should have foods with peanuts before they turn age 1. that would make a lot of moms nervous. >> in some ways that seems counterintuitive. but we now know one of the best ways to prevent peanut allergies in children is to give them peanuts early.
7:41 am
there was a large landmark that story that came out this past february. in it they found children who were at a high risk to peanut allergy, introducing peanuts into their diet early, under the age of 1. lowered their risk of allergyies by 80%. these study results were so dramatic, so compelling that the american academy of pediatrics wanted to put out these interim recommendations rather than waiting until next year when the official guidelines are to come out. they wanted people to benefit. >> how do you know if your kid is at high risk? >> i know. as parent myself every time i introduced my daughter to a new food, there's the fear this going to make her allergic. if you have family members who have peanut allergies or your child eczema and the last is if they had egg allergies.
7:42 am
those are things that should make you say i should take my child to an allergist and have them tested. >> does that recommendation apply to all children then? >> i spoke with a top food allergy researchers who also served on the advisory committee panel who put out these recommendations about that exact thing, vinita. she said the reason it's for high-risk kids only is because really the research is focused on high-risk kids. but chances are introduced these high-risk foods to children, whether they're high risk or not is going to be of benefit. it's just that the recommendations aren't there yet. >> all right. many americans use ohmega-3 but many doubt their benefits. holly, what does it say? >> a lot of research suggests that diets rich with omega fatty
7:43 am
3 helps our brain. this study wanted to focus on supplements. we know that omega-3s are found in foods, fish, flaxseed oil, canola oil, vegetables, but they wanted to see if supplements made a difference. there were 4,000 people they followed over five years. some took an omega 3 supplement, some took a placebo. at the end of five years they found that taking the supplement showed there wasn't any significant change. >> and what about eggs? >> they're essential fats. you can't produce them. the omega-3s have several effects on the body. they help our cells work better, they turn on certain genes and work on inflammation. in terms of cardiovascular disease they have been shown to
7:44 am
decrease try diplomacy rides and improve heart health. everybody should be eating about two servings of fish per week, particularly fatty fish is the best kind. if you don't like feet, then flaxseed, nuts, and vegetable oils can also be substituted. >> what if anything can we do to slow cognitive decline? >> in addition to following a heart healthy diet and exercise, if the brain had a motto, it would be "use it or lose it." we know that social interaction is better. working longer, retiring later in life has also been shown to tee crease cognitive decline and doing reading, exercises for the brain. puzzles. anything to stimulate the mind especially as we age really makes a big difference. finally this morning don't feel bad if you cry during a movie. a few tears in the movie may help your mood improve.

8:35 am
would it be? >> past or presence. i would probably say my dad. he passed away in '96. he came to the grill when i was working there. he had a chance to dine with me, which was awesome. but i would say him because for him to see where i am right now, i know he's already watching over me, but for him to sit down with me at this meal and judge me on like the barbecue at the restaurant because i know he's a tough critic. every time i make some barbecue i think about him. >> we're so glad your mom let you back in the kitchen. kenny gilbert, thank y
