Prizes or Health…

Trading health for prizes:

Commercial shows how box tops from processed food products benefit the educational needs via computers and gifts for schools.   All you have to do is purchase the consumable goods, of course the intent is to feed the family, but What’s in it for the kids, and who is buying the products?

Are we really going to kill our kids for prizes?  Where is the education in that logic?  If you want to educate children, show them how products use them to manipulate guilt so they can sell a product and make it look like they are doing something wonderful for their education.  Give your children access to computers to  look up the ingredients in those boxes and discuss what’s really inside of them.  Then explain to them again why you want them to eat it. If you have the box tops, send them to the company, with a letter, and request a that check be sent to the school instead.

Be parent enough to stand between predatory targeting of children.
