I think that the real problem is that people don't have time to eat. Nutritious meals need to be cooked by a catering service and be delivered to busy people. Nobody feels like cooking after coming home tired after a hectic day at work.

Why do most people not know what a GMO is?! Ban GMO's. Get them out of the food supply. Stop feeding GMO corn and soy to animals that end up in the food supply. Lower the price of organic food.

I think it's time for our Heath care and our doctors team together with our government to help lower prices of such foods and juice.Yes I agree there are many over weight kids out there ,and what kid don,t drink these energy drinks and they drink juice like there,s no tomorrow.But when could buy a 2 litre soda cheaper then you can buy those V8 fruit and vegetabe juices what choice does a parent have.I have to buy these V8 fruit and vegetable juice for my son for medical reasons.I pay $3.99 a litre I only have one child he drinks two a week not including his milk which cost $4.00 a two litre.These energy drinks should be sold in liqour store,kids as young a 9and 10 buying these,where is Heath Canada sholud,nt they be looking into banning these from stores.My son bought one of these Marley drinks last week which is surposed to relax you and make you feel mellow,well it did just that he fell asleep after drinking it.I went on line and read the can first thing it's says do not operate machinery it's contains a natural root plant that you use to treat insomnia.Even though the clerk told him it was just like a fruit drink.Step up government and remove these drinks from the candy stores.

Labels on junk food are a bad idea as are extra taxes. A better use of labels is to put them on prescription drugs handed out like candy by doctors causing more deaths, health care costs, worst ever drug addiction and side effects/complications without ever going to the root cause DIET! Its disgusting how backwards healthcare is because its about making money.,. labels on junk food would make certain big companies rich while closing down competition. meanwhile you get a vaccine and no one tells you its made or chicken egg, monkey liver, has toxins, causes cancer or that drug makes arent liable or the real stats about vaccine injury. HELLO! Grains are worse than sugar for obesity. Dont be fooled. a slice of bread has a higher gi rating than pure sugar with just as little nutrition. Smart option would be to ban unnatural high fructose syrup, MSG( it has 15+ forms/nameS), aspartame( all deadly and all legal while revamping the foodguide to show nutrient dense foods, not grains, flour, grain fed meat , pasturized dead and mucus filled milk. The food pyramid is similar to the hog fattening pyramid. go figure. We live in a land of lies where we are told amalgam is safe, fluoride protects our teeth, dont eat fish for mercury but use mercury laden cfls. Labeling junk food is a waste of resources when the food guide promotes obesity through grain consumption and pasteurized grain fed milk and meat consumption. the government should stay out and do the job of banning man made chems in food. its the first step, they neglected to protect us GIVING INTO bad studies and lobbying by industry. follow the money. They should lable GMO foods, irradiated foods, pasteurized foods, all these things hurt us too. perhaps if a refinement act was passed. sugar couldnt be refined to pure white... at least there would be a little more nutrition. Grocery store box items have health checks, smart checks and its all junk food. whole grain cereal is junk but touted as healthy. fat free makes you fat through extra carbs,.. Whomever thought of labeling junk food surely missed the boat. we cant even label healthy food properly. but healthy food is real greens, vegetables and fruit. they dont come in package or a box with any label otherwise its just junk in disguise.
