Website states its cookies and cereals are good source of vitamins, minerals

A manufacturer of foods targeted to kids states on its website that the cookies and cereals are good sources of various vitamins, minerals and omega-3 ALAs (alpha-linolenic acid -- the plant-derived source of omega-3 fatty acids).


It is possible that the products are a good source of the vitamins and minerals, but the Nutrition Facts information for each of the nutrients would need to be shown on the website as well, in order to substantiate/legitimize the claims, just as when such claims are made on food packages. As for the omega-3 ALA claim, this is not permitted, because there is no Daily Value established for omega-3 ALA fatty acids. Only claims (such as "good source" or "high in") for nutrients with a Daily Value can be made.
