After months of buildup from USDA Secretary Dan Glickman and the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI), the agenda for the May 30-31 “National Nutrition Summit” has finally been made public…and it spells bad news for restaurants and their patrons. One discussion group will focus on “the food environment (producers, marketers, restaurants, etc.) that affect obesity.” Another will try to come up with “behavior changes” regarding the food choices people make. Along those lines, CSPI and other anti-choice activists have already vowed to lobby for mandatory menu warning labels and “fat taxes” at the summit. Is this really the role of the federal government?
