Information is the key to good nutrition

It looks like -- finally -- that the government will amend the rules around nutritional information.  And it's about time.  How many times have you searched for the calories of a package?  And don't get me started on the serving size.  But now it appears all will change.

What changes would you suggest?  My first suggestion is to put the percentages of sugar, corn syrup, and all those "bad" things right on the label.  If sugar is the third ingredient, does that mean 10% of the product is sugar or 49%?
