Blogger apparently ate this post last night (or either ConAgra hacked my account and deleted it):
As YJDKIY was answering (mostly wrongly) Jeopardy clues last night, a commercial break sneaked past my mute button and I had the um, pleasure, of watching this:
Does anyone else see a problem with that? I get it, kids are picky. But do we really need to teach kids and reinforce to parents that vegetables taste bad? And that they should eat this product instead?
Also, if you pause around the :10 mark, you can read the disclaimer:
"Full serving of vegetables" means half-cup of vegetables per serving. The Dietary Guidelines for Americans (2005) recommends 2.5 cups of vegetables (or 5 servings) per day based on a 2000 calorie diet.
I went to the Chef Boyardee website, to check out just what a serving looked like, but after spending 10 minutes on the site, couldn't find any nutritional info whatsoever. Clever. All I got were "Crazee Games" "Awesome Offers" "Tastee Food" "Big Chef News" and "Mom and Dad Stuff". You would think nutrition would be under Mom and Dad Stuff, right? Nope, you'd be wrong.
