National and local Victoria & Vancouver food advertisers can sabotage your Vancouver Island child’s health. Food manufacturers, like most Victoria & Vancouver corporations, are motivated by profit, not by what’s best for Vancouver Island kids.
Their tools are deceptive language, cartoon characters, celebrities, and false promises of popularity. Vancouver Island parents can help youth better handle the constant media barrage by teaching them:
The components of a healthy diet
The implied messages and false promises of Vancouver Island food ads
Nutritional balance and moderation
How to read and understand Victoria & Vancouver food labels
How excessive TV watching and internet viewing can affect health
If you encounter a local Vancouver Island food ad that is deceptive, contact the Victoria & Vancouver Better Business Bureau. To complain about national ads, send a letter to the Children’s Advertising Review Unit, Council of Better Business Bureaus, 845 Third Ave, New York, NY 10022.
Nothing will change until Victoria & Vancouver families unite to fight deceptive advertising aimed at Vancouver Island children. For more information on children’s nutrition in Victoria & Vancouver, call me today.
