Makes perfect business sense for the fast/junk food companies to lock in the next generation of consumers early by starting with the nutritionist who will influence our kids.  Have to protect your revenue stream.\ \ I learned that allowing lots of sugary treats in school is actually good for kids, its a teachable moment about moderation.   I love a good spin doctoring.\ \ #irony{.ot-hashtag .bidi_isolate}\ #bigfood{.ot-hashtag .bidi_isolate}\ #lobbyist{.ot-hashtag .bidi_isolate}\ #mcdonalds{.ot-hashtag .bidi_isolate}

It Was Catered by McDonald’s ~ [Mother Jones] :: [Excerpt:] “As I wandered the exhibition hall, I saw that McDonald’s wasn’t the only food company giving away freebies. Cheerful reps at the Hershey’s booth passed out miniature cartons of chocolate and strawberry milk. Butter Buds offered packets of fake butter crystals. The California Beef Council guy gave me a pamphlet on how to lose weight by eating steak. Amy’s Naturals had microwave brownies. The night before, Sizzler, California Pizza Kitchen, Boston Market, and other chain restaurants had hosted a free evening buffet for conference-goers: “Local Restaurant Samplings for Your Pleasure.”“ [More at the link.] ::  #nutrition{.ot-hashtag .bidi_isolate}{.link-embed}
