Food Marketing

Standard

Apparently, just slapping a cartoon on packaged broccoli will help a child choose it over potato chips.

Also, children will claim that the food with the cartoon tastes better. I find this incredibly amusing as I remember my childhood, arguing with my mother that I had to have a blue plastic cup for my icecream because it tasted better in the blue cup.

Interesting, eh?
