I like the iea, but within reason. The manufacturers of the types of foods, the ads of which you want to control, need to be given a chance to offer alternates to their flagship products. We don't want to shut down the manufacturers completely and force the empoloyees of such establishments into unemployment. Nor do we want to overburdon the manufacturers to invest an aborbatant amount of money into revamping their products from the ground up, also possibly causing bankruptcy and unemployment. I think it's definitely feasible, and not far from banning the cartoon Camel of Camel cigarettes. Just don't go overboard or be radical. You might even consider easing into it, slowly changing the guidelines year after year until they reach your intended goal. Be careful not to tread on the free enterprise and their constitution-granted rights and freedoms.
