PCRM Presents Dannon with SICK Award

Dannon received the SICK (Social Irresponsibility towards Consumers and Kids) Award for their misleading advertising and other efforts that push the public and children into choosing unhealthful foods. SICK Award went to Dannon this year for their 2014 Super Bowl Oikos Greek Yogurt ad featuring John Stamos, Bob Saget, and Dave Coulier from the 90s sitcom “Full House”, distorting the benefits of yogurt and failing to disclose its adverse health consequences. “The Oikos ad is a nutritional fumble,” says Susan Levin, M.S., R.D., C.S.S.D, director of nutrition education for the Physicians Committee. “Dannon relies on a fictional image of yogurt as a healthful food product, when yogurt consumption can actually take you out of the game completely.”

If our food choices are influenced more by advertising than the nutritional value of those foods, we tend to follow profit and not mindful eating. Although it’s sometimes hard to discern how deceiving commercials can be, it’s always better to follow common sense and to do a little bit of research before believing blindly in advertising.
