Smart Choices

A good nutritious diet for Americans: Fudgsicles, Froot Loops and Kraft Bagel-fuls. How do we know? They have this little green checkmark on the label which means … which means … they could be even worse for you than they are. Somehow.

If you aren’t a careful reader you might think the little green check means the products are good nutrition. Not 44% sugar, like Froot Loops.

Who runs the program? A nonprofit lab in Colorado. Who pays for it ? ConAgra, Nestle, Kraft, Kellogg, Coca-Cola, Unilever and Wrigley — the country’s largest food processors.
