In this week’s Economist, there a story purporting that Pepsi is making “healthier” food.

The giant drinks-and-snacks firm attempts to wean itself off sugar, salt and fat….

In the long run, much will depend on the success of Pepsi’s strategy to convince the public and regulators that it is on the side of reducing obesity, not creating it…

Quaker… is Pepsi’s leading healthy brand. Pepsi hopes to use its expertise in product design and packaging to make these goods more enticing, especially to children at breakfast time.

Product design??? What’s wrong with plain ol’ oatmeal???

Product: Oatmeal - Quaker Weight Control Instant Oatmeal, Banana Bread
