Walmart Promotes Health

Walmart announces a five-year plan to lower prices on fruits and vegetables, and reduce salt, fat, and sugar in packaged foods.

Yesterday, Walmart announced a five-year plan to reduce unhealthy salts, trans fats, and sugar in its Great Value brand packaged foods. The company will also lower prices on fresh fruit and vegetable. First Lady Michelle Obama, a proponent for healthy eating and reducing childhood obesity, worked with Walmart to develop the plan, and attended the announcement stating that “this charter is a huge victory for folks all across this country.” The initiative also includes commitments to building stores in underserved rural and urban communities where fresh produce is not readily available. Walmart currently has more than 4,000 stores operating nationwide, and accounts for one of every three dollars spent on groceries in the US.
