Food Makers and Obesity

Food & Nutrition • • ObesityMar 30, 10

“From Mrs. Obama’s Garden” (editorial, March 25) highlights one of our nation’s serious challenges: childhood obesity. The first lady deserves great credit for uniting the country around this complex problem, and the food and beverage industry is answering her call to improve childhood nutrition and health.

Already, we have changed more than 10,000 product recipes to reduce calories, sugar, sodium and fat and are working with the Food and Drug Administration and the Agriculture Department to improve nutrition labels. We support child nutrition laws that feed more children and science-based nutrition standards for food sold to students during the school day.

This will be a continuing process. But we are confident that we can deliver the healthy choices people want, while providing the convenience, taste and affordability consumers demand. We are fully committed to continuing to work together to help all Americans build and maintain a healthy lifestyle.
