It is hard to pin this one because, is it the individual and there food choices?, is it the supermarkets? who can we point a finger at.
Supermarkets are well known for putting their popular sugary foods within eye level to make it easier for you to spot them, they sometimes have offers such as buy one get one free, we know manufacturers will pay a premium to have their products in the best positions in the stores. Recently I walked around a couple of supermarkets and noticed that all the sugary cereals were at a level a child could easily see them, and all the large packs of confectionery that children like were also in a prominent position to be spotted.
Is it the individual and there food choices and we all know that children and adults like sweet tasting things, is it because some children and adults are not so active as they probably could be. People do play more on electronic toys these days these days and is that to blame.
This is a really tough one, because the supermarkets are our go too place for our food and they are their to give us what we want and will have the best sellers like cake and sugary foods and confectionery in prominent positions and they are there after all to make a profit.
Is it the shopper or the individual at fault because they buy these products for the family and for themselves, lets face it, our children like their favorite cereal, we like our favourite chocolate bars etc.
