I want to tell you about the White Out Movement. We now understand that the foods that babies eat in the first year multiple times, they form a lasting preference for. And for the last several decades, the very first moment we give babies solid has been processed white flour, white rice cereal. It's that moment when babies are wondering what food is all about, they lean forward, and that's the taste they get. And they get it again and again and again. It's no wonder that processed white flour treats are the number 1 source of calories for our kids. And there's no good reason to do it. So the White Out Campaign is very simple. Let's erase that mistake. Let every child's first grain be a whole grain. They won't mind. They'll thank us for it. Let their first foods be real foods, not over processed foods. So help spread the word and we can get this one done.
