Nestle and Newark....sigh

Here is a "Must Read"
http://healthland.time.com/2012/04/27/can-a-formula-company-really-promote-breast-feeding-and-fight-child-obesity/

Bonnie Rochman does it again - she lays out the underbelly of Nestles' 'nice' support the city of Newark of $100,000 to combat...obesity?!?.  The Mayor expresses pride in this donation.

We really need to get behind these folks and expose this for what it is: marketing that will harm mothers and babies in a city with a high population of vulnerable folks.

Hello Miriam

So glad you are supporting an end to more of Nestle's skulduggery.

I wrote my thoughts in the comment section of the article including a link to a wonderful video clip of Senator Ted Kennedy cross-questioning a US Senate re Nestle & the WHO Code in the developing world.

Cheers, Julieanne
