Cheese a junk food?

In the UK, they are no longer allowed to advertise cheese during children's programming because it's too high in fat and salt.

Nevermind the sugary cereals, which don't come under the new ban.


In celebration of this stupidity, I'm handing out sticks of string cheese to my three robustly healthy children. The Brits can keep the Chocolate-Frosted Sugar Bombs.

Next they'll tell kids to quit pouring milk over their Chocolate-Frosted Sugar Bombs because there's too much fat in IT, too. Oh, but then, I guess there's always skim milk, or soy milk... neither of which my children will touch with a ten-foot pole.

An extra dollop of butter on the homemade mashed potatoes, just for that.
