Our new marketing scheme is nuts, not to mention cashews

The Australian Food and Grocery Council (AFGC) on Friday launches a responsible children's marketing initiative, under which manufacturers will vow not to advertise products to children unless they promote a healthy diet and lifestyle. - The Age

Freddo, the Cauliflower Patch Frog sounds so catchy. I'm there for it.

Maybe they should have a look at the hospital system which you'd think would be a good place to start with the healthy foods. i remember once having an IV tube with liquid pumped into my stomach and I was told it was "chocolate milkshake". Indeed! Ny sister asked what the point was, since i couldn't taste it, and you'd think they'd use the opportunity to pump me full of goodness like brussels sprouts shakes or broccoli smoothies or something.

I can't see how that system would fail. You could deliver 'good for you' foods to your stomach by way of IV tube, and 'good for your mouth' foods like milkshakes the conventional way!
