I’m sure you’ve realized this warning before, but do you think children know the difference between a healthy burger and a fatty fast-food burger?
With the amount of advertisements cheering on a happy relationship between children and fast foods, the line between what is healthy and what is not could be easily skewed in the eyes of a child.
One Australian dad, Aaron Shultz, believes this about his own kids. In particular, he’s worried about all of the junk food promoted during sporting events.
“I’m just a normal dad that’s got concerns about unhealthy products being pushed to my children.”
His main goal is to have warning labels on all fast food packaging, exactly like the ones you’d find on a cigarette package.
Shultz acknowledges this is a major step and has requested for small strides that will eventually lead to his goal set labels. The first step would be an ingredient list on all fast food packing as well as a food source and whether or not the product has been treated for hormones or chemicals.
“We don’t have the capacity for people to make informed decisions because there’s no labelling.”
However, nutritionist Keri Gans doesn’t believe in Shultz ultimate vision.
It’s The Size of The Matter
Gans says it’s not the fast food that’s causing our children to become obese, but the portion sizes and amount of consumption.
“I don’t think we can say one Big Mac will make big children,” Gans states.
Gans can’t see fast food labels moving past the first stage and agrees that an extensive ingredients label could benefit informed dining for consumers.
But she also admits that most people probably know the dangers to eating fast food. I’m sure even this article title didn’t throw you off – and yet some individuals continue to choose fast foods.
Just as some individuals decide to smoke, despite the significant amount of dangers and warning labels.
