Weight Management and Calorie Control

Weight Management & Calorie Control

Given the obesity epidemic, it is not surprising that calorie control is being emphasized in the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans. The report encourages Americans to “prepare, serve and consume smaller portions of foods and beverages, especially those high in calories,” because “serving and consuming smaller portions is associated with weight loss and weight management over time.”1

Increasing vegetable consumption is also helpful for those trying to cut calories and manage their weight, as vegetables are generally low in calories. Yet, according to the 2010 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee Report, approximately 75 – 95 percent of Americans (depending on age and gender) fail to meet their recommended number of servings per day.1

We know that it can be challenging for people to be aware of what and how much they eat. To help people actively manage their weight, we offer hundreds of products that are 100 calories or less per serving as well as those that provide a full serving of vegetables. Visit our Product Profiler to search for products that provide 100 calories or less, those that provide vegetables, or both!

We also provide a variety of portion-controlled products that offer great taste and satisfaction, including Campbell’s® Soup on the Go soups, Pepperidge Farm® 100% Whole Wheat Deli Flats® thin rolls, and V8® 100% Vegetable juice in 5.5-ounce cans.
