The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which analysts Jim Mueller and Jason Moser discuss topics across the investing world.

Walt Disney's announcement that it will be placing restrictions on advertising junk food and promoting healthy food instead may seem to be just a PR stunt to satisfy supporters of New York City's proposed regulation limiting the size of soft drinks, but it's good for both the top and bottom line as well as its customers. That's a winning combination for any portfolio.

    I fail to see how Disney's turning down advertising revenue will help both the top and the bottom line. It would seem to me to be one more example of appeasing political correctness. When I take my kids to Disney World, they prefer funnel cakes to carrot sticks.

    Do you Jim?
