Food Companies Eliminate 1.5 Trillion Calories from Marketplace

The Healthy Weight Commitment Foundation announced that its 16 participating companies have already surpassed their goal of reducing 1.5 trillion calories sold in the marketplace by 2015. The Academy praised the announcement as a positive example of the effect of public-private partnerships on the public's health.

HWCF is a coalition of CEO-led organizations dedicated to helping reduce obesity, especially childhood obesity, by 2015. It focuses on improving family and school environments to help people achieve a healthy weight through energy balance.

The Academy has been involved in the HWCF since the beginning. The Academy Foundation's Kids Eat Right collaborates with HWCF and Playworks to implement Energy Balance for Kids with Play (EB4K with Play), which promotes nutrition, physical activity and energy balance.

Two years ago, the companies vowed to reduce the number of calories in the marketplace by 1.5 trillion. Recent analysis conclusively indicates the companies surpassed this goal in 2012.
