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

Companies profit off the ill health of our children. It's time this was stopped. Your job is to serve and protect, this would help to protect the most vulnerable among us. It is nearly impossible to explain to my small children why "fruit snacks", sugary cereals, and hot dogs are bad for them. A simple it's not healthy doesn't go very far, but they don't understand explanations of long term health effects. There are millions of things that need to change, but this is a first step that you just can't overlook. Please tighten the reigns on these out of control greedy companies.
