Commercial Alert, a nonprofit public health and consumer group, says Disney’s new healthier food guidelines have large loopholes through which a whole fleet of twinkies could be driven.
“Disney’s new food guidelines are more notable for what they omit than
what they include. Conspicuously absent was any mention of standards
for products marketed on ABC and its other television companies.”
“If Disney really cared about kids, it would stop all marketing of junk food to children, including on ABC.”
While I agree Disney could have gone farther, they are very far ahead of all their nearest competitors. So let’s give them props for that. Then a few months from now when we see how the new policies are working, we can ask for refinements. How’s that sound?
Did I mention I’m looking forward to my new skinnier waistline?
