Interesting article in today’s BullDog reporter about marketing to mothers/children re: junk food. Nothing too outlandish or surprsing here. One stat I thought was interesting:
58% of moms say they are going to feed their family what they want regardless of marketing messages
Well, I would think so! Depending on how old you are, you can remember the commericals on TV as a kid, the big jug of Kool-Aid and all the happy kids that surrounded him. Did anyone ever show the down side of sugar overload? No, and when you are a kid, you don’t really care. Now that I am a mother, granted a mother of a child who has yet to eat solid foods, I most defintely am concerned about nutrition. Childhood obesity is such an issue, especially in this country. I want to do all I can to offer the best choices.
