Preliminary Proposed Nutrition Principles to Guide Industry Self-Regulatory Efforts, Project No. P094513

I strongly support any and all attempts to stop the food industry from continuing to market "junk food" to our children. No matter what mom and dad do at home in the way of preparing real, whole foods for their children, the colorful, flashy advertisements will always have our children wanting food that is unhealthy for them. In fact, the stress needs to shift from prepackaged, processed foods in general to delicious carrot sticks, apple slices, etc. with NO toppings other than actual peanut butter or other "real" food choices.
