U.S. Seeks New Limits on Food Ads for Children

I am not concerned about the marketing to kids. I think with all the food-related childhood diseases we are faced with today, including childhood obesity and diabetes we should be more concerned about …the quality of the product. I would like to see a law enacted that completely restricts manufacturers from adding salt, sugar, fillers, synthetic colors, sodium nitrate, MSG, high fructose corn, trans fats/hydrogenated vegetable oils etc to name a few in any food items for kids from 0 to 10 years. In addition, foods for kids should be minimally processed, and freshly made i.e. refrigerated or frozen. It is disingenuous that we are trying to curb obesity when almost 90% of main stream kids’ meals have the potential to do just that. Why in the world is sugar the second ingredient in organic baby banana yogurt? Br​rrr much needs to be done, people are making millions at the detriment of our kids. Sad.
