I don’t understand this. Michelle Obama and the “Let’s Move” movement has made some headway into childhood obesity. Mayor Bloomberg has New Yorkers objecting to his ban on sugary sodas.
Now we have Nestle and General Mills cutting sugar in their products overseas. My question is why not here? Do these mega companies understand that childhood obesity is a problem here? Did they miss the last episode of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo?
If they changed the formula in the U.S. to decrease the sugar,the products may not taste as good, people woudn’t buy them and it would decrease the profits. How about putting health first and profits second? Perhaps Mayor Bloomberg should ban sugar cereals from the grocery stores to help with obesity. I don’t think t will happen but we can always dream.
