A mouth full of silver and Coca Cola's anti-obesity ad, those were the two topics some of our moms tackled in this week's edition of the Mom Squad.
Have you ever dropped off your 4-year-old (anywhere) and just hoped they would be in good hands? A Phoenix, Arizona mom did just that, thinking the dentist office would just clean up her daughter's teeth and that would be it. Hours later, the little girl wrapped up her visit with a mouth full of silver. Fortunately, another dentist replaced them with white veneers.
Obviously, oral hygiene is important, especially if kids drink sugary cola.
That got the Mom Squad talking about the new Cola-Cola anti-obesity ad they recently released.
Just about everyone calls it disingenuous, including U.S. News and World Report: "Sell it for what it is-something delicious and pleasurable, but not good for you. They can't have it both ways."
