Nestlé (the company, not me) joins the pledge
The Nestlé (no relation to me company is pledging to restrict its marketing to children to products that meet industry-wide nutritional criteria. This is a small step in the right direction but suffers from the same problems that beset all such initiatives: the nutritional criteria are established to permit lots of a company’s products to qualify, and not much accountability is built into the system. Will efforts like this do any good? We will have to wait and see.
