A quick look at how some countries advertise food to children:

Ireland: All television commercials for fast food and candy are banned.

Sweden, Norway, Austria, Luxembourg: All television advertising to children is banned.

Belgium, France, Portugal, Vietnam: All marketing is banned in schools.

United States: Spending more per child than any other nation in the world, the U.S. plugs $15 billion per year into marketing food to kids, which is more than what it would cost to provide health insurance for all uninsured children.

U.S. advertisers get what they pay for.
