"ACE is devoted to educating consumers about the critical need to engage in at least a moderate level of physical activity on a regular basis," says Scott Goudeseune, ACE president and CEO. "But we also know that leading an active lifestyle is only one part of our mission to make healthy living an integral part of our society." ACE seeks to educate people about how easy it is to choose foods with better overall nutrition by using the NuVal scoring system. The NuVal program ranks foods from 1 to 100 based on their overall nutrition quality – the higher the score, the higher the nutrition.
The ACEGet Fit™ website is the best place for tips, tools and to see the NuVal system in action. The Get Fit website provides comparisons of different types of foods including chips, fruit snacks and beverages, and highlights the NuVal score of each item. The site also features "Nutrition By The Numbers," a game that tests consumers' knowledge of how different foods rank in the NuVal scoring system.
The NuVal Nutritional Scoring System can be found in participating grocery stores including Price Chopper, Hy-Vee, Meijer, Brookshire's, Big Y, Skogen's/Festival Foods and United Supermarkets stores with more stores participating every month. The score for food products are posted on shelf tags next to the product price and on in-store signage.
