Oakbrook Terrace, Ill., March 8, 2010 Americans recognize things need to change in the grocery aisle, and they support Uncle Sam's efforts to overhaul what is included in their food and on the packages. The majority also believe they are individually responsible for making the right food choices to avoid obesity, but will readily accept the government's help to be successful, according to a new survey by FoodMinds.
"In light of all the recent attention around food labeling and nutrition guidance programs, we wanted to get a sense of what the consumer actually thought," said Grant Prentice, FoodMinds' director of Strategic Insights. "We heard clearly they believe things need to change and that it makes sense for the government to lead that charge."
