I heard a piece on NPR this morning that both made me want to scream in frustration and WOO-HOO that someone has FINALLY caught on:
Grocers Lead Kids To Produce Aisle With Junk Food-Style Marketing
I'm like: What has taken you people so long to figure this out?!?! Argh! Big food corporations pay major $$$ to mightily sway our supposed "freedom of choice" toward their products. It is absolutely effective or these corporations wouldn't pump the money they do into their ad campaigns.
But on the other hand, we COULD have our country drooling for broccoli & cauliflower instead of Big Macs, Doritos, M & Ms and Baconators!
Let's use the tremendous power of advertising for GOOD, not EVIL!
This has been a pet-peeve of mine since, like, FOREVER!
I sure hope it catches on and some potent advertising for truly healthy foods can start making inroads against the massive current of advertising for junk!
