A new agreement has been reached in the war on obesity -- an agreement that means changes at your supermarket.

The agreement between the federal regulators and the food industry means a new look to the packaging of the foods you buy.

Major food processors have voluntarily agreed to put nutrition labeling on the front of their packaging.

The idea is tackle obesity through better nutrition.

The Grocery Manufacturers Association and the Food Marketing Institute says it will also launch a $50 million education campaign to go with the new look.

Consumers should start seeing the new labels in the next six months.
