Kids These Days

When I was a kid back in the distant ’70s, we played outside and rode our bikes around our suburban neighborhood until we absolutely had to come in for dinner. There was one truly fat kid in my class, and it was because of a legitimate medical condition.

Nowadays, kids watch That ’70s Show doing little else, and there are plenty of fat kids developing type 2 (formerly adult onset) diabetes and heart disease.

It’s not their fault.

It is OUR fault.

Check out the infographic on junk food advertising. As long as we look away and mouth platitudes about consumer choice and responsibility, it will get worse. C’mon, we can do better.
