Kellogg plans to display additional nutritional information on cereal boxes
Kellogg Company is planning to introduce front-of-the-package nutrition labeling on products the company markets to children younger than 12. This move is an effort to reinforce its commitment to its customers by altering its marketing practices. The new Kellogg Global Nutrient Criteria devised by the company will verify whether products can be marketed to children via radio, television, print, in-school marketing, promotions/premiums, the Internet, and other avenues. The company will adhere to its promise to refrain from advertising to children younger than six. According to Kellogg, its nutrient criteria are "based on a broad review of scientific reports and expert opinions." Products that fail to meet the criteria will no longer be marketed. Products may also be reformulated to meet the nutrient criteria. Summaries including Guideline Daily Amounts (GDAs) will appear on the fronts of all ready-to-eat-cereal boxes.
