Recently, National Public Radio (NPR) reported that Iowa Democratic Senator Tom Harkin is upset that the massive marketing campaign behind the recent Shrek the Third movie is having an appalling effect on our children’s eating habits. He believes that big-boned green ogre is encouraging our children to eat an array of junk food that in turn is causing them to become fat.
For example, this fictional character is sponsoring:
* Kellogg’s – Fruit Loops, Frosted Flakes, Pop-Tarts, Cheez-Its
* Cheetos – They can turn your tongue green.
* McDonald’s Happy Meal
* Pepsi’s Sierra Mist
* M and M’s
Senator Harkin said, “Why isn’t Shrek advertising fresh fruits, healthy vegetables?” Here are some tips to encourage children to eat right.
