    “Those that have one or more warnings cannot include children’s characters, animations, cartoons, celebrities, athletes or pets on their packaging.”

    Great initiative I think, though seems like a very large portion of products in your regular supermarket would have to be marked this way?

    Edit: typo

    Makes it easier for me to know what to buy during a shame feeding.

    If they did that in the US…they would need to increase product packaging size to include all the warning lables
