Marketing To Kids

Nature's Path Toaster Pastries

Every time we shop I stop to check out what’s being marketed to kids. They are, after all, consumers. Stores know at what shelf height to put items to grab the attention of the kids in the store with their parent. Once the little sees the pretty box it’s game over. Heaven forbid the kid can read. “But mom, it’s organic and vegetarian!”

The ingredients list on this particular product is horrifying. There are five different kinds of sugar listed! I wasn’t sure what algin is so I looked it up. It’s used to make medicine and it reduces cholesterol. It also so are parents unwittingly feeding their kids some form of statins? I suppose further research on this topic might be necessary in you’re feeding this junk to your littles.
