Vintage Soda Ad Markets Babies

I found this vintage 7-Up ad that encourages giving babies soda here. Very sad; yet you still see it today. How can our children be healthy when we (as parents) make such poor choices? We need to make each bite count — packed with vitamins and nutrients to help grow bodies, fight off infection, develop brains, etc.

I pray our website can help educate young mothers so they can make a difference to the next generation so they won’t suffer like so many of us are.

Look for our upcoming posts on feeding our children and grandchildren in a traditional (read historically proven) manner.

The text reads:This young man is 11 months old – and he isn’t our youngest customer by any means.For 7-Up is so pure, so wholesome, you can even give it to babies and feel good about it. Look at the back of a 7-Up bottle. Notice that all our ingredients are listed. (That isn’t required of soft drinks, you know – but we’re proud to do it and we think you’re pleased that we do.)By the way, Mom, when it comes to toddlers – if they like to be coaxed to drink their milk, try this: Add 7-Up to the milk in equal parts, pouring the 7-Up gently into the milk. It’s a wholesome combination – and it works! Make 7-Up your family drink. You like it . . . it likes you!
