I am very much against the Food Advertising industry's unhealthy targeting of children. The health issues of our children today are appalling, and the tv commercials that encourage our children to eat very unhealthy foods play a large role in this problem.
Ads such as the "veggie-pushing" ones that Hidden Valley dressing are showing are wonderful. Also, thankfully, restaurants such as Denny's are not offering junk food side dishes with kids' meals, they're offering fruits and veggies.
We have to start somewhere to correct this issue. The good health of our nation should be on the forefront of our society.
Thank you for offering the public to offer our views on this issue.
