Weight Management and Calorie Control

Weight Management & Calorie Control

The 2015 Dietary Guidelines note that “More than two-thirds of all adults and nearly one-third of all children and youth in the United States are either overweight or obese.” Given the obesity epidemic, it is not surprising that calorie control and nutrient-dense food choices are a focal point for the Dietary Guidelines. The USDA food patterns are designed to meet nutrient needs and food group recommendations without providing excess calories (with special attention given to limiting saturated fat and added sugar).

Increasing vegetable consumption is also helpful for those trying to cut calories and manage their weight, as vegetables are generally low in calories while providing important vitamins and minerals. Yet, according to the 2015 Dietary Guidelines, nearly 75%1 of the population has an eating pattern that is low in vegetables, fruits, dairy, and oils.

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 many products that are 200 calories or fewer per serving as well as those that provide at least ¼ cup of vegetables.

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 Light Style® Bread, and V8® 100% Vegetable juice in 5.5-ounce cans.
