Why do they call it Ovaltine? The mug is round. The jar is round. They should call it round tine.

Just don't feed it to your kids. Hell parents should be more concerned with sucralose, sodas and all the other crap they sell nowadays.

Either way, breast feed your kids more and don't smoke while pregnant or surrounded by children.

I thought this was a joke, but it's a real product they're no longer going to make. OK.

I thought it was like bacon diet Coke. Srsly.

Supplement for picky eaters?

You feed the kids nutritional foods from the start. They're hungry... they'll eat anything. As they get older, they don't know any better.

I'm getting a kick out of the "Try the great tasting Fiber Gummies from Pedia-Lax. Taken daily helps kids stay regular" ad at the top of this thread.

attention span of a retarded fruit fly: some parents are just over anal.

// If they were, they wouldn't be parents now, would they?

If only there were some sort of person who could make purchase and dietary decisions for kids too young to earn a salary...

In 1986 I landed in Germany with an infant, so I couldn't help noticing a product almost exactly like this in the shelves. But then it is the land of chocolate!
