I just cannot seem to understand parents right now. At the "Childhood Obesity Conference" in CA this week, their main focus was... Market advertising. They feel that it is the responsibility of the companies to not market their junk food to kids... It is the companies fault that kids are eating junk....
When did McDonalds show up at your door and force feed your kids food? When did parents stop being in charge of your kids health, and it became the blame of food companies?
I for one, believe in being a parent. Making sure your kids get what they NEED, before what they want... And making sure my DD eats really healthy. Yes it is tough.. But who doesnt know that some carrots are better than potato chips?
No one is responsible for your children, only the parents are. We should stop blaming companies for making their food look good, or appealing to children. Its their job, to sell their product.
But we, as parents, have the final say in what comes into our home, and what we pay money for.. And the word "NO" goes a long way...
