Can it get any more confusing?

My wife made a box of Rice-a-Roni Nature’s Way Parmesan & Romano Cheese Rice for a side dish tonight.

Well, here is the nutrition facts label for the box…

Rice-a-Roni Parm & Rom Nutrition Facts

Can someone please read over that and tell me exactly how much a PREPARED serving of this stuff would be? I think it’s supposed to be 1 cup prepared for a serving, but I’m not quite sure.

Why can’t they make it clear? Are they trying to make making healthy choices more difficult?
