Good morning, Graduate Students: Discuss your reaction to the public service announcement (PSA) video below in relation to the marketing and advertising of junk food to children. A few years ago, Former First Lady Michele Obama was featured with Walmart executives in a Walmart identifying how the costs of “bad food” is so much more affordable than say fruit and vegetables.
Yet, we spend millions on programs aimed at curbing youth obesity. Doesn’t this seem ironic? Why aren’t we talking about lowering food costs for healthier food? Take a look at the PSA and share your thoughts if you have a chance as to whether it is appropriate or inappropriate?
