GO into any supermarket and you’ll see stacks of Easter eggs piled up.
I’ve seen three for £10, two for £5 and even buy one get one free. Some work out cheaper than a bar of chocolate at £1.
I saw one woman pushing a trolley round stacked high with Easter eggs. I’m not being a prude but does no one give a thought to the damage all this chocolate will do to our health? Not to mention the appalling state of children’s rotting teeth.
Many youngsters have to go to hospital to have their teeth taken out before they even start school. I know children who get no less than 16 eggs at Easter!
I’m all for letting youngsters have a treat and enjoy chocolate at this celebration. But it’s about time our supermarkets took responsibility and organised their Easter marketing campaign with a bit more thought.
