@ Beam,

I don't disagree, but we can agree to start with the most awful, unnecessary items first, right? Chips, soda, candy, etc.

I don't think you can entirely get people to stop eating that.
I'd rather do away with the sneaky unhealthy food than the blatantly unhealthy food.

It's not *stopping* people from consuming that stuff that's necessary, but consuming less of it. Just like alcohol and tobacco, two products which were used much more frequently in the past before sin taxes and anti consumption campaigns were implemented. Bloomberg should never have tried to ban 32 oz Big Gulps, but instead put a dollar tax on them.
