Sunshine in my shadows

Welcome to sunshine in my shadows. This blog is my space to share all the stuff that makes up my every day life. Family, friends, crafts, recipes, books and all the little things that add 'sunshine to my shadows'. We all have a sprinkling of sunshine and an equal sprinkling of shadows in our lives.

Fresh Food farce

I saw something that tickled my funny bone this morning when I was taking my son to school. I'm not sure if I have a weird sense of humour. Outside our local safeway supermarket there was a big outside merchandise display along with two open gazebo type tents proclaiming loudly in bright print "Fresh Food kids".
The goods on display consisted mainly of various soft drinks and a variety of flavoured potato chips.
To be fair there was also bread and hot cross buns but by far the fizzy drinks and chips outnumbered the rest of the goodies on display. Now to my mind 'fresh food' brings forth images of fruits and vegetables not processed, prepackaged goods of the sugary or fatty kind. Ironic isn't it when we have the highest rates ever of obesity in children that one of our largest supermarket chains is promoting potato chips and carbonated soft drinks as 'fresh food' for kids.
wishing you sunshine in your shadows

  1. Sorry, I had missed this earlier, Wow what a weird outlook on Fresh Food. I think of water, not fizzy drinks and fruit which is always changing with the seasons. I agree, it.s ironic
