To whom it may concern: I believe tackling the child obesity problem by restricting advertising is not addressing the fundamental problem (think tobacco). In my view there are not good or bad foods, there are good and poor choices hence the solution must be educating the children and their parents on how to have a balanced diet and promoting an active lifestyle. Consumers should be empowered through knowledge to help them have a healthy lifestyle.
