Amid online backlash, Sweetgreen CEO Jonathan Neman has deleted his post suggesting that healthier food could save Americans from what he believes to be the “underlying problem” of the COVID-19 pandemic.

In a Tuesday LinkedIn post, Neman shared his thoughts on the nation’s current coronavirus crisis and called for “health mandates”—which he likened to vaccine and face mask requirements implemented in cities and businesses across the country.

“78% of hospitalizations due to COVID are Obese and Overweight people,” Neman wrote. “Is there an underlying problem that perhaps we have not given enough attention to? Is there another way to

Dr. Nona Djavid, the founder of SoulScale, says if this is happening at your house, it’s important to remember you’re not alone.

“There’s so much variety of food that’s available to us: the packaging, the marketing, all of that. So, it’s becoming harder and harder to get your kids to eat healthier,” said Djavid.

TOPEKA (KSNT) — Some local groups are working to increase access to healthy foods in Shawnee County and understand the problems causing food insecurities.
