Licensed Characters Promote Kids' Fruit & Veggies
I've always thought that we'd know the tide had turned in favor of common sense and good health when cartoon characters promoted fruits and veggies instead of sugary cereals and junk food.
So I was really tickled to see Sesame Street characters on fruit awhile back. Yes, real apples - not juice, not sauce...just the way they roll off Nature's assembly line.
And just a couple of weeks ago I spotted Del Monte's packaged vegetables featuring Elmo and Cookie Monster (on corn, not cookies!).
No surprise that non-profit Sesame Street is leading the way on this.
But I've got hopes for spinach featuring Sponge Bob!
Do products like these interest your kids? What refreshingly healthy food products have you seen - or tried - recently?
