A simple way to know it's healthy
Healthy Ideas was created to make it easy for you to shop for healthy foods without reading all the labels. We took into account the things that matter to all of us - calories, fat, cholesterol, and sodium - and developed criteria that evaluated foods based on the FDA and USDA guidelines. We also made sure that every Healthy Ideas food has at least 10% of the daily recommended amount of one nutrient, such as Calcium or Vitamin C.
You'll find the Healthy Ideas symbol on thousands of products located throughout the store, including nearly all the fruits and vegetables in the produce department.
So you know if you choose Healthy Ideas foods for your family to eat - or as a Simple Swap for your recipes - you are giving them a truly healthy diet. Hooray for you!
