I support proposal 100%. Food companies are knowingly and willingly selling our children high-calorie, high-sugar, low-nutrition food. They are no different than tobacco companies who market to our youth, and if we sit idly by and allow them to continue obesity and obesity-related illnesses and death will permeate the future lives of our youth.
