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

I support the IWG's proposal to use a food-based approach in the nutrition standards to ensure that the foods marketed to children make a meaningful contribution to a healthful diet. I also support the IWG's comprehensive view of marketing to children, covering the wide range of approaches companies use. I strongly support the overall proposed nutrition principles and marketing definition, but urge several changes to clarify and strengthen them.
