ISBNPA fully supports the latest Society of Behavioral Medicine policy statement about mandating front-of-package nutrition labeling policies in the US.

Below, you can find the summary statement and the recommendations included in this policy statement.


The Society of Behavioral Medicine supports mandatory front-of-package nutrition labeling policies to improve nutrition literacy and healthier food purchasing behaviors to address diet- related chronic diseases.


  1. We urge members of Congress to co-sponsor the TRUTH in Labeling Act of 2023, which updates front-of-package food labeling requirements that would allow consumers to quickly identify foods high in sodium, saturated fat, and added sugar.
  2. We urge the FDA to issue regulations that require front- of-page nutrition labeling. These front-of-package labels should be mandatory, nutrient-specific, include calories, and call attention to high levels of nutrients such as added sugars, sodium, and saturated fat.
