Regulation of Food Advertising and Nutrition Criteria for Children
Diane Katz at The Heritage Foundation.

Federal regulators recently unleashed plans intended to radically restrict food choices for American children. Nutritional staples such as Cheerios, peanut butter, and yogurt are verboten under the proposed standards, which effectively constitute a government-regulated grocery list. Proponents contend they have only the best interests of overweight children in mind. Whether pursuing weight loss or some other high-minded goal, however, the action is unproductive and likely unconstitutional.

    This is just one more variation on a theme. With the burgeoning ranks of federal workers, they all have to find something “useful” to do. Why not concoct a few more regulations? It’s for the children, right? I just wrote about a similar topic: http://www.marfdrat.net/2011/09/01/why-do-governments-feel-the-need-to-try-and-regulate-everything/
