Today in my community nutrition class, we learned about food marketing, specifically towards children. This video clip (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fUjz_eiIX8k) was shown at the start of the lecture.
What do you think? Is this simply food art? Or is it more? What message is this sending?
Or should I just shut up and get a job as a food make-up artist (aka food-stylist)?
Or should I just shut up and go get a burger?
Fun Fact (from the rumor mill, but most likely true in some/many cases): Did you know that food stylists will enhance their strawberries with lipstick, will pour glue over cereal instead of milk and will replace ice cream with shortening mixed with sugar?! Yikes…and yuck!
