I totally agree! But if they're just banning the commercials and that food/drinks will still be sold, is there really that much of a difference? Kids like that stuff, and even if there are no advertisements for it they're still going to want it. I think its a pretty good plan though. STOP CHILD HOOD OBESITY!!!!!!!!!!

True, McDonalds and Coca Cola do have healthy items, but they're still not as good as produce you would buy in the grocery store. I think that the commercials should be banned.

Well duh! My gym teacher told my grade that she researched and she found out that the healthiest thing on the menu is the ice cream. And the breakfast isn't that good.

If they don't allow it, they will obviously realize that in 2 years, they won't have enough $ and they will have to cancel events. Don't allow the olympics to cancel events.

Its not McDonalds and Coca-cola's fault that they sell sugary stuff. If they r the sponsor of the games, let them sponsor. Coca-cola sells a lot more than soda. I don't drink soda or have fast food a lot but i still <3 the olyimpics. Ads don't always influence somebody to buy their product.

The advertisments do show unhealthy options.But we control what we eat.I mean there has to be other food around. I say keep the ads!!!

I feel like they are sending such mixed messages!I mean it is great that they want to ban the ads in order to try to prevent obesity,but if they are still selling the products at the games it won't make that much of a difference. Plus,fast food is such an epidemic that missing a couple of ads will not change that.

Yes! I totally agree! Childhood obesity is a very large concern tigh now. Although taking away McD and Coke adds may help a bit, it's deffinatlly not going to stop kids from being fat...

McDonalds does have healthy options and Powerade is owned by Coca Cola so they shouldn't take down the ads!!

I need eight glasses of water a day to be healthy.
