Parents have to share the blame for unhealthy food choices their children make. Some kids will usually complain to their parents like “I don’t like vegetables” so they give them cookies.

These three policies when in effect together have a better outcome than alone, the three listed are: menu calorie labeling, soft drink tax, and interventions in schools. Menu calorie labeling has had a small impact on the choices people make for food, and seen more significant result was found from increasing taxes on sodas and cigarettes.
