Selling Your Kids on Fruit

Would you like to launch a Guerrilla Advertising Campaign on your family? Did you know that seeing an appealing image of food more than three times makes most people crave that food?

If you look closely you'll see that most cooked food and junk food advertisements use water droplets throughout their ads to make your mouth water. But really it's the water that is appealing to you. They are using your natural desire for water to sell you their dry packaged food!

When advertising to children half of the ads use pictures of fruit for the same purpose. They know that this is the food that children naturally crave. They use the real allure of fruit to seduce the children into eating junk. They even say "with real fruit flavor!"

Why don't we ever see really appealing commercials for fruit? Well, there's not nearly as much money in fruit as in packaged foods. And you can't patent a fruit.

So we've come up with a new project for our "Take A Fruit Break" Campaign that will allow you to take matters in to your own hands and compete with the billion-dollar junk food advertisers. We've uploaded a series of beautiful posters of fruit that you can download for free and put up in your house, your kitchen, your school, your office, your church, your community center, and everywhere else you and your children can see them, and you'll re-program your natural desire to eat and drink the healthiest food known to man!

By putting up mouth-watering fruit pictures where we can see them several times an hour we can counteract the hundreds of junk food images that bombard our senses daily.

You can download our free fruit posters at http://www.TakeAFruitBreak.com/psas.
