It can't be easy to be Walmart. Sure, you're worth billions of dollars and have stores in virtually every corner of the earth, with plans to open stores on the moon. (Oh, c'mon. They must have plans to open on the moon.) And even if you're not a fan, you have to admit Walmart is part of the fabric of society. In fact, Walmart is now the biggest grocery store in America. Crazy, right? You can get breakfast cereal, winter socks, and a crossbow in the same store.
But check this out. Walmart announced a 5 year plan to make thousands of its food products healthier. The idea is to radically cut sodium and sugar content, and eliminate trans fats in their foods by 2015. And they're actually dropping prices on fruits and vegetables. In tough economic times and with obesity on the rise, that is key.
Even First Lady Michelle Obama is behind this.
And hey, who knows? Maybe people who work at Walmart will actually be able to afford the food now!
