Commissaries worldwide will debut their new nutrition guide program (NGP) in January. The new program catch phrase is 'Dietitian Approved! We Did the Work for You!' Through color-coded shelf tags, customers will find it easy to spot products featuring one or more of five popular nutritional attributes such as low sodium, no-added sugar and high fiber. The labels also highlight organic products. Some NGP labels will have a "Thumbs Up" icon, which means the products align closely with the green category (high nutrition quality/high performance foods) of the Department of Defense's Go for Green program. For more information on the NGP, including the color code guide and frequently asked questions, visit the Nutrition Guide Program webpage.
