Walmart Statement: USDA’s Efforts to Simplify Consumer Nutrition Education


WEBWIRE – Friday, June 03, 2011

“We’re pleased the USDA is taking steps that will help make good nutrition easier to understand for all consumers. Its new healthy food plate icon will help illustrate the importance of eating more fruits and vegetables, as recommended in the Dietary Guidelines for Americans 2010.”

“Through our own healthier foods initiative, we’re continuing to see customers wanting access to fresh, affordable groceries and needing information that will help them make healthier food choices. The USDA’s new icon and educational campaign will be one tool our customers can use to help them make those choices for themselves and their families.”

Andrea Thomas, Senior Vice President for Sustainability, Walmart
