Walmart Initiative: Make Food Healthier, More Affordable

Walmart, the nation's largest grocer, has unveiled a new initiative to offer customers healthier and more affordable food choices.

James R. Gavin III, MD, PhD, ADA Board member and chairman of the Partnership for a Healthier America was a featured guest along with First Lady Michelle Obama at the company's announcement in Washington, D.C.

Walmart's new program contains five key elements:

  1. Reformulate thousands of everyday packaged food items by 2015 by reducing sodium 25 percent and added sugars 10 percent, and by removing all remaining industrially produced trans fats.
  2. Make healthier choices more affordable, saving customers approximately $1 billion per year on fresh fruits and vegetables through a variety of sourcing, pricing and transportation and logistics initiatives that will drive unnecessary costs out of the supply chain.
  3. Develop strong criteria for a simple front-of-package seal that will help consumers instantly identify healthier food options such as whole-grain cereal, whole-wheat pasta or unsweetened canned fruit.
  4. Provide solutions to address food deserts by building stores in underserved communities.
  5. Increase charitable support for nutrition programs that help educate consumers about healthier food solutions and choices.
