(Jan. 5) Dallas-based convenience store chain 7-Eleven Inc. has decided to carry a wider array of more healthful foods and beverages in the wake of a Centers for Disease Control report estimating that 60% of U.S. citizens are overweight.

On Jan. 2, 7-Eleven announced that it is expanding its selection of “better-for-you” foods, including the addition of more fresh fruits and vegetables, salads, low-calorie sandwiches, yogurt and other items.

The company said it features “7-Eleven Pick Smart” labeled fresh foods that offer lower fat and calorie content; no item under the label can contain more than 10 grams of fat or 420 calories.

Fresh produce also gets a boost from the chain, with plenty of fresh-cut fruit cups, sliced or whole apples, oranges and bananas available in stores. 7-Eleven also said it has veggie trays, at least four different fresh salads and smoothies from Naked Juice.

“While New Year’s resolutions typically include some form of diet, most people are looking for more balance in their life,” Cynthia Davis, 7-Eleven senior vice president of merchandising, said in a news release. “They don’t want to be confined to a specific diet, but are looking for a more balanced lifestyle and healthier choices. 7-Eleven offers healthier choices, and you don’t have to look very hard to find them.”

7-Eleven operates, franchises or licenses more than 7,100 stores in North America, and more than 31,000 locations globally.
