The Progressive Radio Network ran a BLOG & video on junk food organizations marketing to our kids. Take this link and watch the video. WE all need to stand up and say “ENOUGH”! America is getting sicker but we are all adults and make our own decisions but when the kids are getting sicker we need to stand up and help them. These diseases can be stopped simply by eating what our bodies were built to eat. Why do we worry more about what we feed our pets and cars than we do our children?

Edmonton Canada bans junk food in schools An article in CBC News Canada reports on this ban. I applaud their decision and understand how hard this is when companies like the big soda companies put tremendous pressure on school boards to sell soda. This ban doesn’t include what is brought from home. So you can still send anything you want to school with your child. I would love to see this start here in the US. Maybe we can curb the childhood diseases that are on an increase and obesity in children. They can’t fight for themselves so we have to do it for them.
