Also, thanks to my fellow blogger Anna’s Adventures in Health for the great post about making your own popcorn 🙂

Georgia’s new anti-childhood obesity ads: fair or foul?

I just saw this and had to pass it along:

GEORGIA ADS

I won’t even write all that much because I’m curious to hear what you all think about the ads. The ads are very controversial and people are appalled at how in-your-face they are. I think that while something has to be done to raise awareness about the childhood obesity epidemic (and yes it is an epidemic), but I’m not sure this is the right solution. The ads come across very accusatory and several of my classmates and I think they could possibly lead to further bullying of kids who are struggling with their weight.

What about putting the parents who are feeding their kids junk on the posters instead? How about singling out fast food chains and food makers who consistently pump out the junk food that is making our next generation the first one in history that has a shorter life expectancy than our parents?

I could go on and on, but I want to hear what you guys think. Click in the “leave a reply” box below and leave your thoughts here.
