There is still some industry-sponsored congressional meddling, but the plan is much improved from previous years.

It has been found that nearly 40 percent of the calories American children eat come from empty calories – cookies, sodas, pizza and the rest. This has resulted in paving the way for “picky eaters” with dull palates.
