This week, the FDA announced that it was banning the use of the term “healthy packaged snacks” as a term of advertising.
Now, some experts are questioning whether the term has lost its way.
This week, some scientists at the Food and Drug Administration announced that they have come to the conclusion that the term is losing its way and that it no longer describes foods that people really want to eat.
In their study, published online in the journal Nutrition Science and Practice, scientists analyzed more than 1,600 consumer surveys.
They found that consumers no longer use the term, but that the label still conveys the message that packaged snacks are healthy.
The new label is more likely to be used to advertise foods that consumers want to avoid.
“The consumer does not think that the word ‘healthy’ implies a healthy diet or a healthy lifestyle,” Dr. Michael DeAngelis, an assistant professor at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, told the Associated Press.
The study is based on a survey of more than 6,000 consumers.
Some of the foods that are included on the label are low-calorie snacks and other foods that might appeal to people who are overweight or obese.
While some of the products were not actually labeled healthy, the survey showed that many people still considered these foods healthy.
For example, one survey respondent said that she ate a bag of Oreos daily.
Another respondent said she ate five boxes of Oreo cookies a day.
Other consumers said they used the term to describe the amount of sugar they were consuming.
But, Dr. DeAngeles said, “the term is not really accurate.”
Dr. Deangelis explained that the phrase is often used to describe products with sugar, such as cereal and fruit snacks.
But, he said, it doesn’t necessarily indicate a healthy or balanced diet.
“It’s an attempt to describe a healthy product, but it’s not very accurate,” he said.
According to the study, more than 60 percent of consumers said the term had lost its meaning.
“The word ‘good’ has lost meaning,” said Dr. Jennifer McEwen, a professor of food science at Tufts University.
“The term ‘healthy,’ for example, has lost much of its meaning because it is perceived to be negative.”
A number of studies have suggested that the labeling of unhealthy products could be harmful to consumers.
Earlier this year, the U.S. Food and Drugs Administration ruled that a company had to label its product as “healthy” because it was marketed to children as a way to combat obesity.
Critics of the rule said that it unfairly targeted healthier products, such a fruit and cereal bar.
In the case of OreO, a food company, the company has since changed the label to reflect its healthier-sounding name.
Other food companies, including Kraft, PepsiCo, and Kraft Foods, have also added “healthy foods” to their labels.
