Comments:Your missing the boat. Trying to modify or change eating habits through coaxing the food industry (total) to change its marketing is a laugh. You'll get some tokenism. The profit motive will prevail. Get real! To make a difference tell it like it is. Eat healthy. Whole grains (unprocesed); vegetables and fruit in season; beans; nuts and seeds; soy milk (other than human mother's milk for infants); eliminate processed foods, i.e. sugary deserts ; candy, ice cream, sodas etc. THEN - EXERCISE!! Progams that obese children can be included in, where they are not uncomfortable. You know what is required. You know you have to set up programs, obtain funding to implement them. Get rid of all the junk food. Tell the public what they need to know and let the chips fall where they may.
