Nutrition & Science

America’s non-alcoholic beverage companies recognize that it will take all of us – government, school administrators, the public health community, health professionals parents and industry – working together to address the complex obesity challenge. That is why we are proud to step forward once again with a nationwide initiative that furthers our commitment to doing our part in a meaningful way: Clear on Calories.

In support of First Lady Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move!” campaign to combat childhood obesity, The Coca-Cola Company, Cott Beverages, Dr Pepper Snapple Group, Honest Tea, Nestlé Waters North America, PepsiCo, and Sunny D (the “beverage companies”) announced this voluntary commitment to make the number of calories in their products even more clear and consumer-friendly, putting calorie information at consumers’ fingertips at every point of purchase. Implementation started in 2010 and will be completed in 2012.
