Competitive Food Guideline in America(I)

      There is no single cause of childhood obesity epidemic and no single solution. That is why the Alliance works across the board – with schools, health care, industry, families, communities, and kids themselves – to make physical activity and healthy eating easy to access. 

      Serving as a catalyst for businesses to become a part of the solution for childhood obesity, the Alliance engages with companies from diverse industries that have the ability to improve the access kids and families have to healthcare benefits and healthier foods and beverages. 

      The Alliance Guidelines for School Beverages and Competitive Foods, voluntary agreements with the food, beverage, dairy and food service management industries initiated in 2006, have resulted in healthier choices available to students in schools across the country – including a 58 percent decrease in total beverage calories shipped to schools between 2004 and the 2008 school year. 

      The Alliance Healthcare Initiative is a collaboration of major health insurers, employers and national medical associations to provide children access to at least four follow up visits with their primary care provider and at least four follow up visits with a registered dietitian each year. The Alliance Healthcare Initiative currently provides the benefit to almost one million children nationwide, and plans to grow that number to more than six million by 2012.
