Two cans, same color, same writing....and only "Diet" and a Splenda logo seperating the difference. Some of you may not find concern in this because you can read. But for me, yes my child can read, but if I gave her a blue can of soda to drink and she asked for another one and I told her to get one out of the cooler....do you think she'd stop and read the can? Probably not! She'd grab a blue can and think it was diet because thats what she was drinking and what I gave her to start with. Scary! My Mom wrote Food Lion a letter and told them they might want to consider changing the can colors to distinguish the difference in "diet" and "regular" and told them about the dangers of diabetics and regular soda. (Go Nae!) So yeah, I guess I'm being nit-picky but this is something that just really scares me now.
Funny how something so simple could turn into something so dangerous! A year ago, I never would have given this a second look but when you know what could happen, you take every measure to protect your child. We'll see what Food Lion says ;) I'm interested to hear their response!
For those of you that don't know yet.....in 6 more hours, my baby girl will be on a plane back home! She leaves Hawaii at 3pm. She is due to arrive home at 11am tomorrow. I'm SOOOOO happy she's coming home! I'll post more pics soon!
