Rudd Center Director Honored For Successful Battles With Food Companies Over Nutrition

December 27, 2009: 04:30 AM EST
A Connecticut newspaper has honored the director of Yale’s Rudd Center for Food Policy as “Person of the Year” for being “a major force behind the change in the nutritional landscape.” According to the New Haven Register, Kelly Brownell can take a lion’s share of the credit for getting big food companies like Kellogg and General Mills to announce reduced sugar content in kids’ breakfast cereals, and for suspension of the much-criticized Smart Choices nutrition standards program. Brownell bases his efforts on carefully gathered scientific data. So far, the strategy has limited his focus to nutritional issues with cereal and soda.
