”I am so impressed with the “Dunk the Junk” campaign and mission. Like the founder of Dunk the Junk I am also a pediatrician trying to make families realize that the standard American diet is making our children sick and shortening their lives. This campaign is smart, provocative, and speaks directly to children in their language. I’m inspired by their work, and hope to continue to collaborate on this important mission.”
