Walmart Offers Healthier Food, Michelle Obama Wins

Michelle Obama is really making an effort to change the way Americans view healthy food.

Her “Let’s Move” campaign aims to promote exercise and better food choices for families, and already she has started to push for salad bars in school cafeterias, and encouraged food giants like Kraft and Coca Cola to stop serving out crap (for lack of a better word).

So, it makes sense then that companies who want to make the First Lady happy might heed her advice. And now Walmart is doing just that, by unveiling a plan to overhaul the types of food sold at its super center stores across the country.

“No family should have to choose between food that is healthier for them and food they can afford,” stated Bill Simon, president and CEO of Walmart. “We are committed to working with suppliers, government and non-governmental organizations to provide solutions that help Americans eat healthier and live a better life.”

According to some store officials, customers have been requesting healthier options for some time now, and the change is a welcome one.

Andrea Thomas, senior vice president of sustainability at Walmart, commented, “Our customers often ask us why whole wheat pasta sometimes costs more than regular pasta made by the same manufacturer.”

It’s clear then that people want the healthy food, but the issue of affordability has previously deterred them from making those purchases.

There’s no word on whether they’ll be offering more vegan and vegetarian options along with these healthier inclusions, but this seems to be a possible step toward that!
