What Do Moms Care Most About When It Comes to their Kids?

What do moms care most about when it comes to their kids? We care that our kids are eating healthy. We want to know what is in the food we feed our families. We have a right to know what is in the food we eat. What’s Scary is right now it’s not possible for me know what is in our food since GMOs are not labeled in the United States.

Great News Moms

We are not alone in wanting to know what’s in the food we feed our families. 93% of American Moms support mandatory labeling of GMOs. A group of celebrity moms have come together and joined many other parents, food advocates, and supporters across the US to sign the Just Label It’s Conceal or Reveal petition in support of GMO labeling.

If wanting to know what’s in your kids food is important to you, I ask you join your fellow moms, food advocates, celebrities and supporters to Sign the Petition telling the big food companies like Quaker Oats of PepsiCo, Coca-Cola, General Mills, Kellogg’s and Campbell’s to stop blocking Americans’ right to know if there are GMOs in their food and to support mandatory FDA labeling. 

Did you know that these large food companies combined have spent more than $100 million to fight GMO labeling campaigns across the U.S. They support the anti-consumer DARK ACT (Deny the Americans their Right to Know). To me, the more transparent a company is with their practices, the more consumers, like you and I, will trust them. The Dark Act makes it harder for American consumers to get the transparency we deserve. The real kicker is that these companies already label GMOs in their food in other countries, So “why not here at home in the USA?”

Lets Discuss PMS and Boob Discomfort

plus a Twitter Party

Lets Discuss PMS and boob discomfort, plus a Twitter Party.
As women, we deal with many symptoms of our menstrual cycle every month. Uncomfortable PMS and boob pain are apart of that. Breast discomfort and pain is a real problem for many woman during PMS and menstrual cycle. Everyone’s level of discomfort is different, but the symptoms are commonly similar. I know I’m not alone, this happens to most women. My boobs are very tender and they swell so much. To the point that I don’t want to wear my favorite bra or any bra for that fact. Your forced to wear an old standby and hope by the end of the day your boobs don’t hurt worse.
I remember when my children were little and would run full force to hug me. I would bend down to pick them up and with their little arms flying and smack so hard into my aching, tender breasts. I was happy to get a hug from my child, but was in pain because my boobs were so tender. #HugsShouldntHurt ever, not from your child, your spouse, or anyone.

Will Quaker Oats lose Moms as their biggest supporters?

 

93% of Moms

Moms across the nation are fed up not knowing if the food they feed their families contains GMOs or not. All for the simple fact that big food companies, like Quaker Oats, DO NOT LABEL it. The more transparent a company is with their practices, the more consumers, like you and me, will trust them. Will Quaker Oats lose Moms as their biggest supporters? because of their practices.

As a mother, I want to know what my food contains that I feed to my family. I want to know that I’m feeding my kids a healthy, wholesome meal. I can’t do that if it’s not properly labeled.

I am not alone in wanting my food labeled that it contains GMOs.

93% of MOMs support mandatory labeling of GMOs.

Are you one of these moms? If you are than have your voice heard and Sign the Petition asking Quaker to support mandatory FDA labeling of GMOs!

Did you know that big food companies, like Quaker Oats and their parent company PepsiCo fund millions in lobbying campaigns to deny the consumers the right to know about GMOs and to stop mandatory labeling of GMOs. They are not alone. Other big food and biotechnology companies spent $63 million in 2014 alone, against GMO labeling. Why , what do they not want us to know?

These companies already label GMO products overseas, why not here at home in the USA? Give us the option of knowing whether to feed our children foods produced with GMOs.

8 in 10 MOMS

80% of moms want Quaker to stop funding anti-GMO labeling efforts. 

Why are they willing to lose the trust of MOMs? Everyday across the nation, Moms give their child a Quaker chewy granola bar. All we want is the peace of mind by knowing that our food is labeled as a GMO product.

Join MOMs across the nation in asking Quaker to support mandatory FDA labeling of GMOs, Stop funding anti-mandatory labeling efforts, and stand up against the DARK Act! Sign this petition below!

Will Quaker Oats Conceal or Reveal GMOs?

This post was created as part of the Just Label It campaign in which I’m a compensated Labeling Advocate. All opinions expressed are my own.

As a parent I want to know what is in the food that my family eats. Do you want to know what is in your food? Most of the world does know. Most countries, including all of Europe and Asia, require GMO labeling, but not America. Many large food companies label GMOs in their products abroad, so you would think they would at home too, but they don’t.

Did you know that Quaker’s parent company, PepsiCo, is spending millions to keep you and your family from knowing what’s in your food?
Unfortunately, Quaker is one of many Big Food companies using their deep pockets to lobby against MANDATORY GMO labeling. Through the trade association,  the Grocery Manufacturers Association, they are supporting a bill in Congress that we call the Dark Act – because it would Deny Americans the Right to Know whether our food has been genetically engineered.

#ConcealorReveal

 

Sign the petition below to ask Quaker to join us and to support mandatory FDA labeling of GMOs! 

Will Quaker Oats Conceal or Reveal GMOs

It’s hard for Quaker to maintain that honest, wholesome image when they are stopping consumers from knowing what’s in their food. To me, the more transparent a company is with their practices, the more consumers, like you and I, will trust them.

GMO crops have led to huge increases in herbicide use, which contributes to an array of threats to the health of people and the environment.  And in case you missed it, the World Health Organization recently labeled the main herbicide used on GMO crops as probably carcinogenic.

People all across the country are fed up with being kept in the dark. In fact, 92% of Americans support mandatory GMO labeling and want to know what is in their food according to a recent Consumer Reports national survey.

That is why I’m working with Just Label It to bring the Conceal or Reveal campaign to Quaker’s doorstep. But we need your voice as well, to help support GMO labeling.

Sign the petition: Ask Quaker to join us and support mandatory FDA labeling of GMOs, stop funding anti-mandatory labeling efforts, and stand up against the DARK Act!
