Nestle, Kellogg’s Sued

Chilean authorities are suing the giant breakfast cereal-makers Nestle and Kellogg’s for putting children's cartoon characters on packets of fattening food in breach of an anti-obesity law, officials said on Tuesday.

The government's National Consumer Service said in a statement it had filed a suit against the two companies plus Masterfoods, distributor of M&M chocolates, under June's “Food Labelling Law”.

It accuses the companies of breaching the law by “using children's characters on packets of various products classed as 'high in’ certain unhealthy ingredients”.

There are a number of commemorations which if not marked on the calendar can go unnoticed and uncelebrated as people deem them to be of little importance and yet they are very cardinal in any society.

One such event is the Day of an African Child, which is commemorated every year on 16 June.

Questions one needs to ask are; how important is this day to the rest of the African continent and the world at large? What is the significance behind the commemoration? And how did this day come about?
