I think there has always been sugary foods out there. I remember begging my mom for different cereals and junk foods and sometimes we got them (when they were on sale). Mostly, the issue now is the inactivity of children. That being said, if children are not going to be as active, we need to expose them to healthier food options. I agree that we should market more nutritionally sound choices to the public. One commercial that sticks out in my mind as an example is the Hidden Valley Ranch commercial. More advertisements like those have to be able to make an impact.
