I am not concerned about the marketing to kids. I think with all the food-related childhood diseases we are faced with today, including childhood obesity and diabetes we should be more concerned about …the quality of the product. I would like to see a law enacted that completely restricts manufacturers from adding salt, sugar, fillers, synthetic colors, sodium nitrate, MSG, high fructose corn, trans fats/hydrogenated vegetable oils etc to name a few in any food items for kids from 0 to 10 years. In addition, foods for kids should be minimally processed, and freshly made i.e. refrigerated or frozen. It is disingenuous that we are trying to curb obesity when almost 90% of main stream kids’ meals have the potential to do just that. Why in the world is sugar the second ingredient in organic baby banana yogurt? Brrrr much needs to be done, people are making millions at the detriment of our kids. Sad.
