(NBC News) -- New food labels are expected to make calories bigger and easier to read.

They may drop some nutrients and add others -- like trans-fats, and the percentage of whole-wheat.

They may also use measurements that are easier for consumers to understand - teaspoons instead of grams.

The changes come as a recent government survey shows 42% of working adults and more than half of older ones read nutrition labels.
