PUBLIC POLICY

  • Taxes On Foods and Containers

    Taxing food won’t make us healthier, but it will hurt our economy and make life more difficult for struggling families. Learn more about why a majority of Americans oppose taxes on foods and beverages.

  • Food Bans and Restrictions

    Bans and size-restrictions hurt small businesses and hard-working families, and do nothing to make us healthier.

  • Education and Labeling

    Today, information about calorie content is easier to find than ever before thanks to new partnerships and labeling practices. Learn more about Clear on Calories and the Calories Count Vending Program.

HEALTH

Healthy living is a choice—in fact it’s many choices. And consumers, not government, should be empowered to choose the food and beverages that are right for them. Research shows government intrusion in this area won’t improve health, nor will it reduce obesity. Educating consumers, not dictating what they eat and drink, is a far more productive way to help them choose from the wide variety of products and portion-sizes available in the marketplace today.

  • Obesity

    Obesity is a complex health challenge with many contributing factors and causes. 

  • Ingredients and Nutrition

    Learn more about the science and ingredients behind many of your favorite foods and beverages. 

  • Hydration

    Proper hydration is as important as the air we breathe. Learn more about why hydration is essential and what you can do to support it. 

  • Bone & Oral Health

    Learn the facts about diet and bone health, and the food and beverage choices that can help support it.
