Wallyworld taking up Mo's idea to stop childhood obesity? I mean really some Americans are too far gone and conditioned to eat junk (Doritoes,little Debbie,Stoffers..etc).Some,who feel a bit guilty for indulging,will wash it all down with a diet soda thinking that makes it all alright.That is their daily or almost daily eating habits.They won't even like the taste of healtheir/lower fat foods and most certainly aren't going to suddenly say to themselves,'Oh Walmart has this non junk food ditch the Doritoes and Ho Ho's I want that apple!' Yeah right..Walmart and most other stores already sell alot of healtheir choices and if those folks aren't biting them now they won't be any time soon..imo

No, I don't think it will make much of an impact. It might make a few people think a little harder about their food choices when they go to the store (not because they didn't think about it before - but more because of obesity being an issue). I don't think it will change peoples eating habits though. They don't buy doritos and funions because they think they are healthy. They buy them because they think it tastes good. It would take probably a good 2-4 weeks of a dietary to become accustomed to a change in taste. It's well worth it, but many people are too impatient to let it work. Healthier choices don't taste bad, they just taste different. If you don't program your body to crave those foods, their body will still be wanting the doritos, funions and diet soda. Just like you can't legislate moral issues successfully, you can't legislate food and dietary issues successfully. JMO.

I think people make unhealthy choices because they are not educated on what healthy REALLY is. Is it going to stop obesity? No, but it's a step in the right direction.
