Monitoring food intake is half of a weight management equation. Exercise is the other half.

Maintaining a healthy weight can help manage certain risk factors associated with chronic conditions like heart disease, type 2 diabetes and cancer.

General Mills strives to help by offering lower-calorie options and portion control. 

Today, hundreds of our products have 150 calories or less per serving, with many totaling 100 calories or less per serving. 

Expanding communication

In October 2015, the global Bell Institute of Health and Nutrition launched revised its web site.

It serves as a resource for health and wellness influencers around the world, including government officials, fitness professionals, medical doctors, health bloggers, dietitians, chefs, nurses and others. 

The website provides shareable and customizable handouts, educational videos and nutrition research. 

All content is grounded in science and covers health and wellness topics ranging from the benefits of eating breakfast to top trends in nutrition. 

“More and more communication occurs through digital and social media. As a leader in health and wellness, we need to ensure health leaders and influencers around the world have access to scientifically sound nutrition information they can easily share.” – Maha Tahiri, Ph.D., Vice President, General Mills Chief Health and Wellness Officer and leader of the Bell Institute of Health and Nutrition
