WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. — Dannon will partner with the American Diabetes Association to raise awareness about diabetes and the importance of a healthy, balanced diet.
In helping to support ADA's Stop Diabetes campaign, Dannon will include the Stop Diabetes logo on packages of its Light and Fit greek yogurt.
“We want to change the perception that people with diabetes have to sacrifice eating all of the foods they love and show there are many appropriate food choices that are also delicious. During American Diabetes Month and through our relationship with the Association, we want to remind people with diabetes that they can incorporate variety into their diets and create a healthy eating pattern that fits their taste preferences and lifestyles,” Amanda Soled, RD, CDN, health affairs manager at Dannon said.
Dannon will also have recipes featured in ADA's free online recipe resource, Recipes for Healthy Living and in materials mailed to those who have been newly diagnosed with diabetes.
