@MacroFour @traderjodie I think middle-class consumers are more likely to be drivers of what "the food industry" does/doesn't do bc there's more discretionary spending there anyway.

@MacroFour @traderjodie @sarahkbowen1 It may not be coming from you personally, but there's a lot of judgement in those messages: that you are lousy mom who doesn't care about her kids if you feed them "bad foods."

It is, after all, just food. It isn't - despite what some folks say - "poison" or "toxic." 4/
