India Asks PepsiCo to Help Make School Lunches Healthier

India’s government is seeking help from an unlikely partner to improve the diets of millions of its hungriest children: PepsiCo Inc., the world’s largest snack maker.

The nation’s three-month-old government asked PepsiCo to develop nutritious processed foods to be included in school lunches around the country, food processing minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal said yesterday after a meeting with Pepsico Chief Executive Officer Indra Nooyi.
