Rarely do I find myself rooting for big box establishments like Walmart, though yesterday’s announcement that the biggest retailer in the country will begin to offer more healthful food items deserves applause. In addition, the king of low-prices will encourage its suppliers to do the same. Walmart has been known to put the squeeze on both the small and large companies with which it does business; however, clamping down to give consumers healthier food choices can only be seen as an all around good move.
We cannot help but believe that the perfect storm is brewing for Nexercise when initiatives like this are announced. Now, if someone can just get to the First Lady for us, we can help her with the “Let’s Move” program. Let’s move people!
