M: Hey, there. How are you?
W: Oh, hi. I'm great! Thanks. And you look great, too.
我很好！谢谢 。你看起来也很不错 。
M: Thank you. It's good to see you shopping at the organic section.
I see you've got lots of healthy stuff. I wish I could buy more organic produce from here,
but I find the kids don't like it. I don't know about yours, but mine are all about junk food.
W: Oh, trust me! I know exactly how you feel.
My children are the same. What is it with kids these days and all that junk food they eat?
I think it's all that advertising on TV. That's where they get it.
M: Yes, it must be.
My children see something on TV and they immediately want it.
It's like they don't realize it's just an advertisement.
W: Right. And practically everything that's advertised for children is unhealthy processed foods.
No surprise then it becomes a battle for us parents to feed our children ordinary fruit and vegetables.
M: That's just the thing. One never sees ordinary ingredients being advertised on TV.
It's never a carrot or a peach. It's always some garbage, like chocolate-covered sweets. So unhealthy.
W: Exactly. And these big food corporations have so much money to spend on clever tactics designed to make young children want to buy their products.
Children never stand a chance. It's really not fair.
M: You are so right. When we were children, we barely had any junk food available, and we turned out just fine.
W: Yes, My parents don't understand any of it.
Both the TV commercials and the supermarkets are alien to them.
Their world was so different back when they were young.
M: I don't know what will happen to the next generation.
W: The world is going crazy.
M: You bet.
