Junk Food Tastes Good with TV

Seems that a group of food companies, a.k.a. purveyors of junk food, are going to be reducing ads for their foods, to help support efforts to reduce childhood obesity. The LA Times has an article here.

Sounds like a good start, but I wonder if its enough to really put a dent in this problem? Kids need to eat more nutritious food, but they also need to get up off the couch and get outside. I believe that's the key.

There is a new article in the Journal of the American Medical Association on this topic. I've ordered it and will report back.
