While I certainly appreciate the goal of teaching girls how to run a business, it's ridiculous to do so by selling nutritionally deficit, sugar-loaded and carb-loaded junk food. I think we should be boycotting these sales instead of supporting and publicly endorsing and promoting them. The FAQs are equally ridiculous, saying it's ok to eat junk food in moderation and defending the lack of low-fat and low-carb options by saying there's no demand. Billions are made by annually by U.S. food manufacturers that sell healthier snack options. A better program would be to sell a snack food with nutritional value, and teach the girls how you can make money by offering great products that are good for people. Making money and learning a sales lesson by getting grandma and grandpa to buy junk cookies isn't very valuable.
