Why it matters: "Bud Light is likely the first of many to make the move. The labels aren't legally required, but major beer makers agreed in 2016 to voluntarily disclose nutrition facts on their products by 2020.

Tivity Health has agreed to buy weight loss and dieting company Nutrisystem for $1.4 billion in cash and stock.

Between the lines: Tivity is known for its SilverSneakers fitness classes for seniors, which often are an added benefit in Medicare Advantage plans. Tivity sees an opening to include Nutrisystem in MA plans, as the federal government recently said it will expand MA's supplemental benefits to include things like groceries and home-delivered meals.
