New York Times: Business/Media: U.S. Seeks New Limits on Food Ads for Children

Over the past several years obesity has become a big crisis with children and youth.  The government has announced that all fast food restaurants have to limit how they  (advertises cereal, soda pop, snacks, restaurant meals and other foods to children).  The government has also announced that restaurants have to make their food healthier in order to start bring down the obesity rate of children. The way fast food has been advertising their happy meals is by adding a toy so the child has something to play with while they eat their greasy cheeseburger and salty fries and drinking some type of soda which is just a bunch of empty carbs. that does not help the body at all.  We need to promote foods with better quality nutrition which will actually help our bodies rather than destroying them.
