Fast food and high sugar items, despite what some people will have you believe, are not actually addictive substances, in the way that cigarettes are. And as @kimny72 said, they are not necessarily unhealthy in and of themselves. Only when consumed to excess as a contributing factor to obesity.
I would consider being supportive of limitations on certain types of advertising that are specifically advertised on and targeted towards children. I think that would be prudent. But considering alcoholic beverages can still be advertised on general programming, I don't see any reason why fast food and sugary food shouldn't.

I wouldn't support a ban. But I would support a requirement that food companies must show the food looking as it is typically served, instead of the dressing up they do for TV commercials. Imagine if they showed a Whopper they way you actually get it: squished bun, patty halfway sliding off, condiments awkwardly all on one side of sandwich.
