Why I didn’t have soda as a child. Seems it’s a fruitful day in the news for upsetting me. The worst part about this is, it is easier to set lifestyles in childrent than it is to change them later. These are kids who will grow up overweight and have health problems because of it, and will forever crave soda and other high calorie foods. If you simply don’t get into the habit of having potato chips, soda, and twinkies when you are growing up, you don’t have the urge to eat them all the time in the future. I wonder if this could qualify as child abuse. I have seen cases where animals are obese and are taken away from their owners because of their poor health, so why can’t the same happen with children?
