Overwhelming aspects of the United States' current food environment encourage poor nutrition and present the country with an unprecedented public health challenge. Legal solutions are required to correct the current market system that has resulted in overweight or obesity in 48% of children and 68% of adults. Ms. Pomeranz discusses the current food environment, responds to the specific challenges in addressing this public health crisis, and presents ideas for reform designed to support government intervention, alter consumer demand, and stimulate social norm change around food.In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
