The Happy Meals Crime: Kids and Marketing

By admin | January 29, 2011

So the folks at Fooducate do it again in this great article about WHY the Happy Meal is inherently unethical and possibly illegal.  It’s all about the marketing and the guidelines that the government set forth to protect consumers (especially consumers w/o scruples — i.e. kidlets).

Here’s a snippet (but please read the article in its entirety) “So, if advertising to young children is inherently deceptive, and deceptive advertising is illegal under federal law and in most states, how is it even happening? And doesn’t this mean that not just food, but all marketing to young children is currently illegal? I get this question a lot. The answer is yes.”
