Those of us hoping for health need our kids as much as they need us. In unity there is strength, after all. A family that eats well together has no junk food in the house in the first place.
This is not an argument for soda over juice. The point being made is that you don't really know what you're getting unless you look at the label. And without knowing, round and round we go on the hamster wheel on our futile attempts to be healthier individuals.
