Re-programming Your Kids

#1 Postby SeaSiren » Thu Jun 08, 2006 3:57 pm

My girls were always good about eating fruit, but now I can't keep enough oranges in the house! We have the posters on our fridge and even when I walk in I want some. :D

Tired of all the junk food advertisements your children are exposed to all day long? Once we see an appealing image three times it sets up a craving for that food! Now we can take matters in to our own hands and advertise to our children in their homes, schools, churches and community centers!

That is a great idea. :D

I agree.
And fruit is so lovely, who wouldn't be tempted by a beautiful image of it.

I was watching a TV movie the other day, and amazed at how many commercials are for crap food or for drugs (including stuff for upset stomach, acid reflux...see any connection there? :wink: ). I think making a choice to not buy any food that's advertised on TV is a good idea. Unfortunately, those are the images that kids see three or (many) more times.

And to think, I've been thinking about getting into painting again, and the one thing I love painting is fruit bowls. Painting & hanging them would be great for my family, even though they've been eating more fruit since I went vegan.
