The nation’s largest grocer said Thursday it will reformulate thousands of store-brand products to reduce sodium and sugar and push its suppliers to do the same.

It also promises to reduce prices on produce and build stores in poor areas that don’t already have grocery stores.

First lady Michelle Obama said Wal-Mart’s plans have “the potential to transform the marketplace and help Americans put healthier foods on their tables every single day.” She lent star power to Wal-Mart Stores Inc. executives as they announced the effort in Washington as part of her campaign against obesity.
