Sunkist launches ‘MyPlate Meal Makeovers’ initiative
SHERMAN OAKS, Calif. — Sunkist has launched an initiative that is designed to emphasize how following dietary guidelines can help consumers reduce their caloric, fat and sodium intake.
"MyPlate Meal Makeovers" helps consumers visually assess what small changes can be made to significantly improve the nutritional quality of every meal through a series of "before and after" photos.
"Sunkist is always looking for ways to help promote healthy living, and the Sunkist meal makeover program does such a great job of illustrating what a difference it can make when you follow the recommended guidelines," said Gina Widjaja, advertising and PR manager for Sunkist Growers. "We hope consumers will benefit from the before and after plates and use them as a guide for making better food choices and adding more citrus into their daily diet."
