Today the Independent Women's Forum (IWF) launches a new initiative to reign in government. The IWF Women for Food Freedom project is an effort to push back on the nanny state and encourage personal responsibility so that individuals are allowed to choose the food that's best for them and their families.
Washington is trying to regulate one of our most personal daily decisions – what we eat. Whether it's regulating specific ingredients, nutrition labeling or how restaurants prepare their food, the government is playing an increasingly bigger role in our diets. It's our goal to expose these regulations for what they are and to show that they limit choices, raise food prices, cost jobs in the food industry and simply won't make Americans healthier.
Women for Food Freedom will focus on a wide range of topics, including food regulations, soda and snack food taxes, junk science and food and home-product scares, misinformation about obesity and hunger, and other federal food programs, including school lunches.
