Are The Safefood Ads Fat Shaming Kids?
 
# 1 : Sunday 1-5-2016 @ 21:34
 
 
Has anyone seen those Safefood ads about childhood obesity? It seems a bit tactless for them to be using real overweight kids in their ads. Surely that's gonna mess with their heads at some point?



(Decided to turn a random thought into a topic, original post below)

Morto for those overweight tweens in the Safe Food ad. NI are vicious when it comes to health aswell as road safety it seems.

I think it's a good message though, if I ever have children, I won't have crap like that in the house.

I agree with the message too but they could have used a cartoon to convey it.

Is the ad not altered though? I just assumed the kids were like photoshopped or whatever they use with technology nowadays?

So many fat kids nowadays though And the parents never seem to think they're too blame.

Awful.

Can they actually not see that their child is obese at 4 yrs old. It's disgusting.

I suppose some parents need to be shocked into action but using real fat kids is kinda merciless.

It's a cross border organisation.

Have you seen the *biscuits* and *checkout* scene in the video above?

The lad tween is overweight and the older teens are pretty heavy too.

That thought crossed my mind and there is no issue with that but it still seems as a cop out on us.

Vicious???...
Why??
Should the children have been slim kids pretending to overweight or have pillows shoved down their clothes, so as to upset obese kids..
N Ireland has a huge problem in the health boards with children who are living with health problems caused by obesity.
This is reality not an insult.
