Would you knowingly let your baby eat metal?
Would you knowingly let your baby eat metal? Of course not! A congressional investigation that was released today states that four leading baby food manufacturers (Gerber, Beech-Nut Nutrition, Nurture Inc and Hai Celestial Group) knowingly sold baby food that contained high levels of toxic heavy metals that are detrimental to the brain development of babies.
According to the same congressional investigation Campbell’s Soup, who sells The Plum Organics brand of baby products, did not cooperate with the investigation. I believe this story points to a larger issue in our culture. The issue is that we rely to much on enormous companies for our health and well being. These huge brands, in my opinion, are focused primarily on efficiency and money, not health of our communities and clearly not the health of our babies. Has the CEO of Gerber called you to tell you thank you for buying their products? How about the CEO of Campbell’s Soup? Did he send you a Campbell’s Soup T-shirt thanking you for all of the years that you and your family supported their business by buying there soup? My guess is no. What do WE owe to these big companies? Can they deliver quality food products to EVERYONE in the nation? I don’t think it’s realistic. (I have respect for Campbell Soup CEO he is a West Point graduate. I just wish he’d start his own company)
Today we stared our “Sow Strategy”. Our “Sow Strategy” is our plan to “Sow” (give away with intention) 500 Sow Strong “Bars” in Central Ohio. Our goal is to make Columbus, Ohio synonymous with health and our aim is to be THE “bar” of Columbus and all of Central Ohio. We desire to do this in excellence and in service, not simply to make money. I truly believe we are tastier and healthier than any bar on the planet. The “average way” (which are things that render us useless and ineffective) ￼will not get the job done anymore. Let’s attack and defeat Mr Average! *Please someone start a local baby food company *If I see you I’ll “Sow” you a bar 🙂
