In brief: Unlikely to help

This battle is a complex one but not one any new bureaucracy can help.
Outlawing directed advertising to small children could help ( sugar coated cereal, sodas, junk food) but those industries pay lobbyists & contribute to politicians to keep things as they are. Parents need to turn off the tv & learn to feed their kids healthy & keep them exercising.
