Michelle, I am positive that those of us with children who care about this issue volunteer a lot of time, energy, and donate money, goods, and talent to schools.

Corporate America has no business using teachers to advertise products to children. Marion Nestle is a hero of mine, and I would encourage anyone who thinks this sort of marketing is harmless to read some of her work.
