I am writing to support the proposed voluntary guidelines that would limit unhealthy fats, sodium, and added sugars in foods advertised to children under the age of 18. Children need to be protected from companies that try to sell them junk food as they are too young to fend for themselves. This is one of the many approaches we need to take in order to reduce obesity and overweight among kids.
