Here’s some awesome, if misguided, candy-related wisdom from Life magazine, February 25, 1946: The makers of Dextrose purport to answer the question, “Why do children crave candy?” Why indeed.
Here’s our favourite part: “Pure, wholesome candy in reasonable amounts and at the right time is a valuable factor in balanced nutrition at all ages.”
So don’t make the mistake of only feeding your kids fruit, vegetables, and dairy products. Their higher energy requirements mean they NEED to be fed candy each and every day because “Candy is an energy food.”
And don’t you forget it.
It’s Candy Day on Geyser of Awesome!
