So Multi-Grain Cheerios has a new campaign which is a great idea. This is the main idea behind it: “Take the Never Say Dieting Oath and let’s make the next generation healthy – mind, body, and spirit.” Love this idea! You can read more about it here.
BUT…BUT… Their “balanced approach” to healthier eating is going to hurt rather than heal. 2 of their 5 points we take an issue with:
1. Each day, make at least half of your grain products whole grain
WHAT?!?! Watch a little video here, in case you have forgotten about grains, and as to why encouraging grains is a bad, bad idea. Please, do your own research about grains, read books, search on the internet and inspect the scientific evidence against grains. It is there!
2. Choose lower fat milk and lean meats (or their alternatives) prepared with little or no added fat.
It is 2014 people!! More and more studies have proven that we actually need fats from real foods like meat.
Read here why low fat diets are hurtful rather than harmful.
Sorry Cheerios, love the campaign, but your “healthy” eating approach and your product filled with GM ingredients, sugars, starch, food colouring, miscellaneous chemicals and fake vitamins leaves A LOT to be desired.
Feed our future generations REAL food and they will undoubtedly be healthier in mind, body and spirit.
