Managing weight

In this section:

Health organizations around the world encourage all of us to achieve and maintain a healthy body weight.

Monitoring food intake is half of a weight management equation. Exercise is the other half.

General Mills strives to help by offering lower-calorie options and portion control.

Today, hundreds of our products have 150 calories or less per serving, with many totaling 100 calories or less per serving.

Maintaining a healthy weight can help manage certain risk factors associated with chronic conditions like heart disease, type 2 diabetes and cancer.
