Nestle USA says its working to remove artificial flavors from its frozen pizza and snacks. It also plans to reduce sodium by 10 percent in those products, the Wall Street Journal reports.

The changes will impact more than 250 products, including DiGiorno, Tombstone, Hot Pockets and Lean Pockets. The company says the changes are part of its ongoing efforts to improve the nutritional profile of its products while maintaining the taste.

Earlier this year, Nestle also announced it was eliminating artificial flavors and colors from some of its chocolate candy. Those changes are set to be in place by the end of the year.
