Junk News XI: Getting tough on Mr. Softee: Parents bitter trucks stop at schools, parks

Can you believe this? Right in my own backyard... :(

It seems really easy to blame Mr. Softee here, doesn’t it folks? But I won’t. I’ve lived too long with Mr. Softee and all the good treats he provides.

Before I get into lists and long explanations, I’ll say two things and then give you enough time to get mad at me:

  1. Too much of anything isn’t good for you. There is nothing wrong with balance. Give the kids some treats…especially if they deserve it.
  2. If PARENTS made their kids run and play and do some form of exercise instead of sitting in front of a TV all day, maybe they won’t have to worry about the foods they eat (or don’t eat).

I’m getting over a bad cold right now and that’s why I haven’t been posting like I need to. Don’t you hate it when real life just gets in the way? ;)

Laters.
