That last sentence - A product that contains empty calories and no nutritional value is being over-consumed. Really? Now we have a test. First, define every item meant for human consumption that has "empty calories." Next, cross-reference with "no nutritional value." I presume that "empty" and "no" are terms of art that need to be defined. Finally, define what constitutes "over consumption." This latter bit is odd - if something has empty calories with no nutritional value, then one would assume that any consumption is unwise. Anyway ... once some politician defines "no," "empty," and "over," then we can regulate anything that fits. The preamble is worthless - "there is an obesity epidemic." If that were really the issue, then only the "obese" would be required to cut consumption. And give us yet a fourth term to define.
This is the very heart of the issue with politics. They think they know better than us. The truth of the matter is that politicians know little about our lives or how to live a decent, God-fearing life. They should focus on budgets, funding the arts, and ensuring police and fire protection are in place - and then simply go away. They are a necessary evil in a representative democracy. Nothing more.
