Special Initiative:
Focus on Fiber

97% of Americans fail to consume the minimum recommended amount of fiber and our health is suffering as a result. Skyrocketing rates of preventable chronic illnesses like heart disease, type-2 diabetes, and high cholesterol are affecting people younger than ever before.

 

That's why Balanced launched our Focus on Fiber campaign to spread awareness and inspire action leading to stronger nutrition policies in our schools and communities.
