Leanda Talks - What's behind the Easter Egg wrapping??
Every year we see the easter eggs coming out earlier and earlier. It seems we just get past Christmas and then we see Easter eggs displayed. It's hard enough even for ourselves sometimes not to give into those sugary treats wrapped in glossy foil that are shining at you as you go through the aisles of the supermarket but can you imagine what it's like for our children.
Bright colours and playful characters on the packages, what child wouldn't want to explore that.
For years and years we keep getting hoodwinked by the clever marketing from not only the confectionery companies but the supermarkets. As there displays are always at eye level for children and then again repeated for adults at the register.
As easter comes around every year the tradition of chocolate easter bunnies offers us such a large amount of confectionery options to choose from. In every little bundle of colourful bunnies lies hidden health problems in the name of SUGAR.
As one of the largest culprits for causing inflammation, acidity and toxicity in the human body why oh why are we being hypnotised into this devilish tradition of gorging ourselves and feeding our children with a excess amount of SUGAR…
Inflammation, acidity and toxicity the top ingredients to any health problems…...
The common words I hear in clinic are “enjoy things in small portions” or the most common is “everything in moderation”.
The meaning of moderation is avoiding excess or extreme.
As we have choice what to put into our bodies and those of our children it comes down to educating ourselves on what we feel is the right choice. Do yourself a favour and learn about food labeling and ingredients as it will really give you a wonderful understanding of what you are putting into your body.
One last point, if we don't buy the products, companies wont make the products.
