Labels Are for Food Products MAG
Labels are for food products
A can of soup.
One deserves a label.
The other deserves a chance.
It starts with the initial judgment.
An overall size up.
Do I want to eat the soup or not?
The number of calories is the first thing you see.
The clothing, hair, and style.
He's in all black. Emo.
She's wearing the most expensive brand. Snob.
Then it goes to the Total Fat.
A judgment of the physical activity.
She's fat. Can't be friends with her.
She's too skinny. Must have an eating disorder.
Moving right along to the grams of sugar.
He's boring and keeps to himself. Not much energy.
She's bouncing off the walls, talking nonstop.
Can't be friends with them.
Now for the percent of daily calcium.
He got an A on his last test. Must be a nerd.
She got a C. Not her best work and she knows it.
But not good enough to be friends with.
You've read the whole label.
Well, at least you think you have.
Only thing you're missing: the ingredients.
The ingredients are the only things that matter.
Take the time to look past the label on the soup.
What's inside of it?
Because what's inside is what really matters.
After all, labels are for food products. Not people.
