“These dietary guidelines reinforce the need to provide Americans healthier food options and align with Walmart’s efforts to reformulate packaged food to reduce the consumption of sodium, sugars and trans fats. We look forward to working with leaders like Secretaries Vilsack and Sebelius to make healthier food more accessible for millions of Americans, while making these choices more affordable for our customers.”
