Blog: Food for thought (but not that much thought)

Catherine Sleep | 12 September 2003

One of our contributors kindly alerted me to today’s Food for Thought newsletter from Cooking.com. The newsletter suggests readers pack their kids’ lunch boxes with “homemade, take-along goodies from Nestlé” that, well, let’s just say I can’t see many dieticians approving of them for inclusion in a school lunch box. Recipes for Baby Ruth Crater Bars, Blond Brownies, Butter Toffee Bars and Chewy Cocoa Brownies will not do kids many favours – Nestlé seems to feel under no pressure to follow the lead of Kraft in devoting attention to positive childhood nutrition.
