Alliance for a Healthier Generation Applauds Sodexo for Their Pledge to Fight Childhood Obesity
Date:5/28/2009

l Beverage and Competitive Food Guidelines - established in 2006 by the Alliance for a Healthier Generation - were created to improve the nutritional quality of school snack foods and beverages, allowing more nutritious and less caloric options during the school day.

The agreement focuses on products sold to schoolchildren outside of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) school meal program on an a la carte basis--inclusive of products in the cafeteria, school store, snack carts, and vending machines in more than 470 U.S. school districts served by Sodexo.

As a result of the agreement, Sodexo will only offer age appropriate portion sizes that limit total calories. The company will also only supply snacks that have no more than 35 percent of their calories from total fat and 10 percent of calories from saturated fat. The approved snacks will contain no more than 35 percent sugar by weight and can have no more than 230 milligrams of sodium, nor can they contain trans fats.

"This agreement builds on Sodexo's ongoing commitment to student well-being," said Lorna Donatone, president of Sodexo School Services. "The Alliance for a Healthier Generation's Guidelines fit perfectly alongside our efforts in nutrition education, locally sourced produce and instilling a lifelong appreciation for good nutrition."

Sodexo currently serves more than 2.8 million school meals each day and provides a variety of healthy beverages and snack options as part of its commitment to student well-being.

"By increasing access to better food and beverages, in addition to physical activity, schools play a critical role in reducing the risk of developing cardiovascular disease among their students and staff." said Timothy J. Gardner, M.D., FAHA, president of the American Heart Association, and medical director for The Center for Heart & Vascular Health at Christiana care in DE. "I commend Sodexo for
