This is government control run amok.
In response, DGAC called for diet and weight management interventions by “trained interventionists” in healthcare settings, community locations, and worksites.
“Government at local, state, and national levels, the health care system, schools, worksites, community organizations, businesses, and the food industry all have critical roles in developing creative and effective solutions,” they said.
DGAC also called for policy interventions to “reduce unhealthy options,” limit access to high calorie foods in public buildings, “limit the exposure” of advertisements for junk food, a soda tax, and taxing high sugar and salt items and dessert.
“Align nutritional and agricultural policies with Dietary Guidelines recommendations and make broad policy changes to transform the food system so as to promote population health, including the use of economic and taxing policies to encourage the production and consumption of healthy foods and to reduce unhealthy foods,” its report read.
“For example, earmark tax revenues from sugar-sweetened beverages, snack foods and desserts high in calories, added sugars, or sodium, and other less healthy foods for nutrition education initiatives and obesity prevention programs.”
Control! Control! Control! That is there solution. Because you are too STUPID to make the right choices. And if you make the wrong choices?
It's. None. Of. There. Damn. Business.
So, Michelle Obama's "healthy" school lunch program was just the dry run.
This is just another example of YOUR TAX MONEY being wasted.
Each year more and more government intervention occurs. I put forth government control is the reason for obesity.
