Mars has also joined other major food companies in signing the US

Children's Food and Beverage Advertising Initiative and the

European Food Pledge to make formal public commitments regarding

responsible advertising to children.

-- Improving the nutritional quality of snackfoods offered in schools. In

Generation (AHG) to offer healthier snack choices in schools to promote

balanced eating by children during the school day. Created by The

Clinton Foundation, the American Heart Association and the Robert Wood

Johnson Foundation, the AHG has set specific guidelines for competitive

foods offered in schools. Mars was one of the first five initial food
