This is a book for kids about how fast-food marketing gets you to buy junk and how each of us can fight back and be as healthy as we can be.
There are so many untruths out there about junk food. Kids tend to believe the media because they are in their face 24/7. Because kids are on social media so much, it can be hard for them to avoid these junk food ads after a while. The media just basically saturates the market with these ads, and then eventually kids eat foods that they really shouldn’t in order to be healthy.
This book will help kids understand and recognize fast food and beverage marketing so that they can make more informed decisions on what and what not to consume.
One of the reasons it is so easy to eat junk food is because they are easy, convenient and happiness-in-a-box, until you consume it. It is basically very unhealthy for the young and especially kids to consume junk food on a consistent basis. We all need to become mindful of this and avoid junk food as much as possible.
Many of us have no idea how the food goes from field to table or what is put in the food to make it tasty, from additives, colours, and sugars.
But we can all reclaim our food, healthy and well-being. We can do so by planting a school food garden, learn cooking skills to make yummy, healthy food for yourself and your family, write to stores and food companies to ask them to offer food that’s delicious and good for you, push for access to healthy, sustain food for everyone.
I just loved this book for all the information that is contained in it for kids and parents. May we all start 2019 in a much more healthy frame of mind.
