Everyone's heard of the ban on sugary drinks NYC Mayor Bloomberg wants to implement. But, what does a Coca-Cola executive have to say about it? The interview is quite entertaining, but here's a highlight:
Q: What sugary drink limits do you place on your kids?
A: My job as a parent is to guide them through the day to make the best choices. If my son has lacrosse practice for three hours, we go straight to McDonald's and buy a 32-ounce Powerade.
Thank goodness for McDonald's! Personally, I'd rather stop at a convenience store to pick up Powerade rather than "guide" my children to look to McDonald's for anything - even if it is just a drink.
Read the story, you'll get a chuckle.
