I just HAD to comment on this article I just saw at the following link:
http://www.app.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20070330/OPINION/703300395/1030/POLITICS
The title is: FOOD ADS CONTRIBUTING TO CHILD OBESITY EPIDEMIC.
As if we didn’t know… But it is an interesting read. This particular article starts off with, “Half of all the advertising time on children’s television shows is devoted to food, according to a Kaiser Family Foundation study of food advertising aimed at kids. And what do the commercials pitch? Candy, cereal, fast-food and other restaurants, soda and other sweetened drinks.”
It’s time to level the playing field and start feeding our kids real food again. And if they won’t take it straight up, well I have just the remedy for that!
