committing to providing its schools with healthier foods and beverages that are compliant with the Alliance for a Healthier Generation Guidelines, and I am glad that we will be working with them to really make a positive impact on the lives of those students and staff."

The Alliance for a Healthier Generation established the School Beverage and Competitive Food Guidelines in 2006. More than 35 leading companies in the snack food, dairy, and beverage industries have voluntarily agreed to adhere to the Guidelines and provide children with better access to healthier foods and beverages at school. Since the introduction of the Guidelines, there has been a significant reduction in the calories shipped to schools; beverage calories alone have decreased by 58 percent from 2004 to 2008.
