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

The prevalence of marketing to children of unhealthy foods has impacted the weight and health of both my generation (their parents) and the next generation with rising obesity, hypertension and diabetes. Never is this more evident than in my profession...dialysis. Please help our children understand what is healthy to eat and how to use food for fuel, not for social status by working with the food industry to limit what can be marketed to our impressionable children.
