ABC’s of Health Claims


If you are Calcium and magic bullets; no single food has everything you need.

  • Be adventurous! Try a variety of foods to get a wealth of nutrients into your diet.
  • Make WebMD your go-to website to keep abreast of the latest diet and nutrition information.
  • I doubt that the obesity epidemic is related to consumers understanding of health claims. Plain and simple, our love affair with food and disdain for exercise is the cause of the epidemic, not the labels. But does the claim ‘lose more weight with 100% daily value of calcium’ encourage consumers to purchase the product? Maybe so. The FDA is banking on it and overhauling its dietary claim process in an attempt to help consumers choose more wisely. Stick with the “A” or “B” list of health claims to lead you to foods with the greatest nutritional benefits.
