How about a better idea with the same goal in mind: let's make fruits and vegetables cheaper for those who purchase with food stamps. The poorest Americans are unquestionably most affected by obesity and diabetes, and their food stamps are funded by government money anyways. As for this particular bill-- sounds good in theory, but would not be beneficial in practice. We all want our kids to eat healthy, but adding yet another level of bureaucracy to decide what is healthy would be costly, messy, likely inaccurate, and negatively affect a multitude of small and large business across the country. For those not convinced, ponder the following: how would we fairly assess and tax providers of food that's 'decently' healthy? What metrics would they use? Fat (there's good and bad)? Calories (good and bad)? Sugars (again, both good and bad). If you remember, this same federal government also came up with the Food Pyramid decades ago, which we now know to be a far less than stellar guide to eating healthy. This is not a job for the government, but rather a decision for the market and for American parents to make. Besides, the ("free") market approach is already driving up the popularity of health foods. Let's let progress take its own course in society, and leave the government out of this.
