As part of their healthier food initiative,
Walmart has introduced their “Great For You” Nutrition icon:
The icon appears on the FRONT of the packaging of select Great Value (Walmart brand foods) and Marketside items. The icon is designed to make it easier for shoppers to identify healthier foods as they work their way through the market. This is a giant step in the right direction! Parents and shoppers as you shop in Walmart, look for these products! It will help speed the process of making healthy food selections.
Items that were selected for the “Great For You” were designed to meet the criteria from the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans,U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and Institute of Medicine (IOM)
