New Cargill Website Targets Child Nutrition

May 6, 2013

The website gives information on how Cargill’s ingredients can help create products with less trans and saturated fat, sugar, and sodium, and with more whole grains, fiber, and protein.

Cargill (Minneapolis) has launched www.childhood-nutrition.com, an informational website aimed at food makers to help them formulate healthier products for children. The website features nutrition articles (e.g., “Statins for 8-Year-Olds?”), regulatory news, and information on how Cargill’s ingredients can help create products with less trans and saturated fat, sugar, and sodium, and with more whole grains, fiber, and protein. It also apprises visitors on “consumer trends shaping the rapidly changing landscape surrounding childhood nutrition.”

“The U.S. Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommend dietary patterns that support good health and set out the ‘what’ and ‘why’ of child nutrition, but it will take industry to provide the ‘how,’” says Robert Murrary, MD, a pediatrician and professor, Department of Human Nutrition, The Ohio State University, in a Cargill press release.
