The Fuming Fuji is outraged at the marketing of toxic food, especially when it is aimed at the small fry. This week, the Fuming Fuji has decided to have a serious problem with 100-calorie snack packs.
But, Fuming Fuji, you say, these are sensibly-sized snack portions!
The Fuming Fuji says no!
The claim: Children need snacks, Fuji. And so do grown-ups. At least these little treats are only 100 calories, so it won’t do you any harm.
The catch: The Fuji is perplexed by this bold assertion that we “need snacks”.
The comeback: …were you going somewhere with that? Fuji? Okay, well, I’m just going to go do the dishes. I’ll check back in five minutes.
The conclusion: You’d like to think you got the better of the Fuming Fuji, wouldn’t you? Just hold your horses, snack-pack presumer! I was merely preparing my argument.
Chips and cookies are unhealthy; no one disputes this, correct? Let us hope. Then how do you justify snacking on garbage food because it is only a tiny amount of garbage food? I am a tiny amount of fury, and yet, the food industry quakes in fear of the Fuji. Well, maybe not, but my point is this: children are not trash compactors! They deserve a garbage-free nutritious existence, not an almost garbage-free existence! You do not need snacks – you need to love your body! How will the tiny tots learn properly if you show them that you do not think you deserve a garbage-free existence?
The catchphrase: Almost respecting the body is still disrespecting it.
