Eliminate "Kid Food"
We the undersigned assert that kids are, indeed, people too- and should be fed accordingly. No other species preferentially seeks out food of low nutritional quality for its offspring; the adults of every other species teach their offspring how to eat for lifelong sustenance and vitality. There is no basis in all of nature for Homo sapiens to do otherwise. The only rationale for a large variety of “kid foods” and the aggressive marketing of them is profit- but it is profit that comes at the expense of the health of our children. Our children are people, and should learn to eat the foods that sustain the health of people across the lifespan. We support the elimination of “kid food.”
