Like a heap of people, I do my grocery shopping with one eye open for Heart Foundation ticked foods. Because even though the foodie companies pay for the right to wear “the tick” on their wares, it surely stands for something, yeah?
But I’ve figured out how companies weasel their way through the Heart Foundation’s hoops. And twigged that it’s a total rort.
Here’s a packet of seven (7) sausages that we bought from Woollies last week… when we first spotted these in the meat section we thought we’d hit the jackpot. SAUSAGES! With the HEART TICK!
But, normally I’d eat, say, two sausages with my veges for dinner? Maybe three sausages if I was feeling particularly hungry (or on PMS).
Oh noes. That’s not a Heart Foundation approved serving size.
Check this crap out:
So to eat the Heart Foundation approved serving size, we’re only meant to eat ONE MEASLY SAUSAGE.
They’re fat little buggers, but jeebus, no way I’d cope on just one. I gots to have my proteins!
You can feel my anger because I used MS Paint, no?
I call bullshit on the Heart Foundation tick. What say you?
