There has been a great deal of controversy swirling around the recent ad campaign here in Georgia regarding the Childhood Obesity billboards and video! I see the posters and have posted some of the commercials currently airing on local television here. The larger point is addressing the problem, yes it is in your face, but is there any nice way to address this?
I’m more offended by the ads coming from MacDonalds,Burger King, 7/11, Taco Bell, Wendys etc than this billboard.
I think we are in a real obesity crisis, particularily among children: My opinion is that the food industry is marketing and packaging “fake food?”, and that processed foods are rampant.
Parents are working and don’t want to bother with preparing “real food”, so they take the quick fix
I think it’s going to cost us dearly in the long run.
Kids don’t know their fat because it’s become status quo.
Usually it takes a crisis for our society to pay attention
