You can lead a horse to water.......People who dont WANT to eat healthy WONT. Rich or poor. I was B-R-O-K-E on FS with two kids and we didnt eatjunk. Real junk is really expensive and the farm stands took FS too! We didnt eat crap because I wouldnt feed them crap and I figured out a way not too. And it's not JUST food thats the problem. It's a LOT to do with the lack of activity. I eat a lot of carb heavier foods because thats what I like. I am not huge because I stay active. My kids stay outside and ride bikes and scooters and climb trees so they arent overweight either....and they get McDonalds and Pizza sometimes ;) Its not just food and you can not MAKE people eat right.....No matter the lables.

It hasn't worked yet. I guess they can mandate that more information be put on packaging, but it's painfully obvious that many consumers don't concern themselves with such details.
