Abstract: To promote health and prevent obesity among the population, one strategy implemented by instance of public health is nutrition labeling on food products. This strategy has been targeted as a key tool to inform and help individuals in making healthier food choices and facilitate adoption of better eating behaviors. In Canada, the most prevalent voluntary type of labeling is related to fat content message. Another example of labeling strategy increasingly implemented in an attempt to reduce obesity is posting of calories at point-of-purchase and it is now mandatory in some United States’ restaurant chains. This work is dedicated to weight and nutritional labeling issues. The main objective of the research is to measure the impact of fat related nutrient claim and posting calorie on calorie and nutrient intake of women during a 10-day period. The results show that these two labeling strategies do not affect the calorie intake of women.
