Morning everyone!

Recently it was reported that junk food ads will be banned from The Walt Disney Company's TV channels, websites and radio stations that are targeted at kids. Disney added that it is the first media company to take such action. Children watching shows on its ABC network will no longer be exposed to fast food and sugary cereal ads that do not meet the company's nutritional standards. Disney says its guidelines match those issued by federal authorities (more vegetables and fruits, and a reduction in sodium, sugar and saturated fat intake).  

I may not agree with all of Disney's policies however this is a great one and a great first step from a large company at attacking this growing problem.  Its nearly impossible to obtain food anymore that isn't genetically modified (GMO), loaded with high fructose corn syrup (no its not the same as sugar), trans fats, PCBs, BPA, and other toxins.  Often times there are warnings on the packages!!  Bravo to Disney!  Be sure to SHARE this information so Disney gets the attention it deserves!

Have a blessed day!
