In celebration of the Healthy Weight Commitment Foundation’s five year anniversary, we’re looking back at the contributions made by the Foundation and its members toward the health and wellness of our children through programs like the Together Counts campaign.

HWCF and its partners have worked tirelessly to meet a vast array of achievements including a commitment to reducing 1.5 trillion calories from the marketplace. In January of 2014, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation announced that HWCF’s dedicated food and beverage manufacturer members had in fact reduced 6.4 trillion calories in the marketplace – a 400% increase over their initial commitment. Together they’ve also reached nearly 15M students with curriculum which supports nutritious eating and physical activity programming. We are proud to be a part of the ongoing efforts to promote active, healthy lifestyles. Check out the anniversary video below to see just how far we’ve all come together!
