Pepsi and other retailers are using “healthy” label claims as a way to sell snack and convenience food and beverages to consumers:

The maker of Doritos, Tropicana and Gatorade considers products falling under that term as those with “positive” ingredients such as grains, fruits and vegetables. That would include its Naked beverages, which can have more than 400 calories and 50 grams of sugar from fruits per bottle, and Quaker products, such as the “breakfast cookie” which has 180 calories, 6 grams of fat and 14 grams of sugar.
