My DS eats quite a bit of processed foods. Like lunch meats, frozen ravioli and things like that. He does make a lot of food also. He would make tacos with cheese, black beans, and taco sauce on a tortilla. He'll make a tenderloin, mashed potatoes, green beans and salads. He goes to a organic store to get his fruits & veggies.
I cannot fix all kids (or husbands)... just mine. When I joined Sparkpeople, I wasn't planning on getting my family to eat right and they didn't. My father would give my daughter pork rinds because that is what they gave him when he was growing up for teething pain. His diet is still bad, but then my generation had fast food...
I don't really think it is as dire as what they say, but responsibility starts at home. I am not going to tell anyone else how to raise their kids, but thanks to Sparkpeople, I started changing my family's eating habits to make them better by changing to healthier, low-fat options and less fast-food / processed food. I also push them out the door to exercise. It isn't easy.
Maybe all the SparKids will learn and then serve as examples to all the other kids and change the world.

As parents it's up to us to see that their food is safe and nutritious as well as their surroundings!
