Will Trump Wreak Havoc On Obama’s Food, Nutrition Initiatives?

November 15, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
A former White House nutrition advisor says food advocates are already worrying about what fast-food fan Donald Trump might do to the Obama administration’s many food-related policy tweaks. These include: healthier school meals, a tougher food safety law, food labeling regulations, a phase-out of trans fats, calorie labels on restaurant menus, and sodium content limits. Republican legislators and others say a Trump administration could target school meals and food safety rules (that create “food police”). Food stamp rules might be overhauled. But it’s unlikely that other initiatives – new "nutrition facts" panels on food packages, a labeling law for GMO foods, and menu calorie labeling – will stay. "Most of them have been implemented and industry has moved on," advisor Sam Kass said.
