American Heart Association Comment
DALLAS, Sept. 26, 2013 – American Heart Association CEO Nancy Brown issued the following comments on today’s announcement from the Alliance for a Healthier Generation:
“Today’s announcement by the Alliance for a Healthier Generation and McDonald's at the Clinton Global Initiative Annual Meeting in New York City is another important step forward in creating healthier options for families, as we seek to build a culture of health and healthier choices.
This pledge, which will increase customers’ access to fruits and vegetables, reduce the visibility and consumption of sodas, and help families and children to make informed choices, as part of a plan for the restaurant chain’s largest markets throughout the world, is a positive step forward towards improving the public health.
As one of the co-founders of the Alliance for a Healthier Generation, along with the Clinton Foundation, we are proud to celebrate the progress being made, and proud that we have moved one step closer to improving the cardiovascular health of all Americans and people throughout the world, helping them to build healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke.”
