Short and sweet. Compelling advertisers to encourage children to choose healthy foods is pointless. Although the ads are heavily geared toward adolescents, whose duty is it to teach them healthy habits The companies and businesses I think not. The responsibility or the burden (as some make it out to be) lies with the parents (gasp!) and the teachers (don't we pay these people to, you know, teach ). Certainly we wouldn't need this piece of legislation if some parents would just bite the bullet and actually teach their children the importance of healthy eating habits. Perhaps instead of compelling advertisers to teach about healthy diets, the government should pass legislation forcing parents to discuss the issue with their children. -a high school student
