Ice Cream Man Deemed “Ultimate Predator” of Kids
(NSLF) Parents across the country are scrambling right now to keep their children active throughout the summer season. Whether it’s in the backyard, on the playground or at camp, keeping children safe is of utmost importance.
MeMe Roth, president of National Action Against Obesity, is spreading fear among parents that summer is a prime season for children to pig-out and plump-up. Specifically, she has singled-out the ice cream as the “ultimate predator” among vulnerable children both lean and already chunky.
If kids should fall victim to ice cream man, Roth has provided a ‘recovery plan’ for parents to follow in the aftermath of an encounter with the ice cream man.
Roth says parents must enforce “three to five miles of running” for each ice cream cone consumed by their violated children. Boys, she claims, are especially at risk of developing “man boobs” if immediate action is not taken by parents.
Roth’s assault on the ice cream man, an American icon and beloved summertime tradition, is not in ‘good humor’ as the term “predator,” when used in conjunction with children these days, brings scary thoughts to parents’ minds.
Perhaps that was exactly Roth’s intention — to scare responsible parents by any means necessary away from occasionally buying their children cool treats after an active day under the hot summer sun.
