#RepealTheSeal

I signed the petition to #RepealTheSeal.

As a Registered Dietitian and Licensed Nutritionist ….

I am  participating in the #RepealTheSeal campaign to show my disagreement with the Academy’s recent decision to allow the Kids Eat Right logo onto food packaging. I invite my fellow colleagues and bloggers who share this opinion, or who support this campaign, to also post this open letter on their own blog, to sign the petition at change.org and/or to use #RepealTheSeal hashtag via social media.

I do NOT agree with the recent collaborative efforts of Kraft with  AND  to increase awareness of the  “KidsEatRight”  logo on a food product that is highly processed, refined and filled with confusing ingredients that may mislead and/or further confuse  consumers.

As a licensed and regulated nutrition professional,  I work diligently every day to help clients, patients, consumers and kids navigate the confusing waters of food, nutrition and health in real life situations to prevent and treat disease.

While I do not condone the occasional processed cheese slice … it is just that … an occasional item.
