The way the food and beverage industry seduces children--as young as 2--into consuming unhealthy amounts of junk food and "liquid candy," is shameful and needs to stop.The food and beverage industry could do a great service if it stopped advertising junk food and redirected its marketing budgets and know-how to promote healthy products. Why shouldn't they be just as accountable for the health of our nation as I am for my children's heath?
