The photo with milk is from First 5’s main website. It accompanies a multiple-choice question about the nutrition benefits of milk. (NIne essential vitamins and minerals! Does the milk industry fund this program?) The photo with sugar is from a First 5 ad that says, “‘Less sugar’ still has too much sugar. Sugary drinks like juice, sports drinks and soda can cause obesity. Choose milk and water instead.” Setting aside the fact that scientific literature is contradictory on this claim about sugar and weight… Prejudice about race, class, and weight are not public health messages, they’re public hate messages. Children deserve to be protected from this kind of damaging fearmongering. (And from creepy Photoshopping!) A Health At Every Size® approach can help people of all sizes (and all ages) reclaim our bodies, our eating, our physical activity, and our health, free from the totally unnecessary poison pill of weight-loss goals.
