If Americans think they know what defines a healthy food, they may be surprised. According to the current Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) regulations on labeling, certain sugar-packed foods, such as toaster pastries and pudding cups, are permitted to market themselves as "healthy," but foods that are widely known to be nutritious, such as eggs, are not. Even more perplexing is the fact that the 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans, issued by the USDA and the U.S Department of Health and Human Services (HSS), contradict this advice. To help bring the FDA's regulations in line with these latest guidelines, and to advocate for meaningful change on behalf of consumers, Pete and Gerry's Organic Eggs today filed a petition with the FDA calling for the organization to modify its labeling regulations and allow eggs to be labeled as a healthy food.
