But isn’t exploiting kids to advance the food nanny agenda also exploitation? Willett also slams capitalism.
The Harvard Gazette reports:
Harvard nutrition expert Walter Willett compared the marketing of junk food to kids with an earlier era’s child labor practices, saying that young people have been “exploited” by both systems. He said such food marketing is an important factor in America’s obesity epidemic.
“Children are being exploited, same as sweatshops,” Willett said. “This is a natural consequence of a capitalist food supply.”
