The Real Bears

Check out The Real Bears a video produced by The Center for Science in Public Interest to counter the commercials produced by Big Soda. Since I have shown it to my kids Z16, R13 and T10 they have totally changed their attitude about things with sugar in them. They have not been asking for sugary drinks and are much more likely to take no for an answer the first time they ask me for something with sugar in it.

Please make sure to watch this video before you show it to your children to make sure you are comfortable showing it to them. There is one scene that some might find scary and there is one"intimate" scene between 2 bears which was fine with me since the bears are married : )

My mom kept kosher - but instead of water served at meat meals she gave us soda (pop).

I am sorry that I gave my children soda - and grateful that they are both NOT soda drinkers since leaving my home.

Last month my doctor wrote me a 'prescription' which reads: NO SODA

I switched to plain seltzer and even with a little bit of cheating, have lost 4 lbs. I am obese and was painfully thin as a child until the age of 47.

Soda, as far as I'm concerned, is the main culprit in cumulative obesity.

Your children are blessed to have a mom who is informed!!

Thank you for sharing!
