I’m late in getting to the Center for Science in the Public Interest’s report on food companies’ policies on marketing to children. The report is in the form of a report card. Most companies get very bad grades. Mars gets the best (a B+) mainly because it has a policy. Most don’t.
The report says nothing about whether the policies are working. Based on past experience, I’d guess they are not. But don’t they look great on paper?
Here’s the Chicago Tribune’s take on this.
Next public appearance
This is the rescheduling of the lecture I was supposed to give on October 10. The taxi driver went through red light at entrance to the Pulaski, was pulled over and found to be driving without a license. We never made it. The lecture is on food politics. It starts at 6:00. Free and open to the public. The Newark Museum is at 49 Washington Street. This time, I’ll take the PATH.
