Channel 4’s Dispatches last night: Do You Know What’s in Your Breakfast? A reminder that, in capitalism, it’s not the job of the food industry to provide good healthy food. Their job is to make as much money by whatever means necessary, even if that means sneaking copious amounts of saturated fat, sugar and salt into your child’s diet.
Some of the anecdotal studies to flesh out the programme were maddening, but it’s still worth watching. It’s on again early morning, 30th October.
