Kellogg's to change 'Sexist' Coco Pops slogan after 10-year-old Girl Complains | BellaNaija

It really is the little things that come together to change the world.

A 10-year-old girl Hannah-Marie Clayton has gotten cereal maker Kellogg’s to change an old slogan she described as ‘sexist.’

Hannah-Marie, who is often served breakfast by her dad James while her mum Anne-Marie leaves home early for work, thought the Coco Pops slogan “Loved by kids, approved by mums” a little odd.

So, according to Metro, she wrote to the cereal company letting them know she found their slogan ‘sexist.’

Kellogg’s wrote back, letting her know that they would be changing their boxes, and the boxes will now read “Approved by parents.”

The 10-year-old told Metro:

My mum was away so I was just with my dad when I saw it on the cereal box.

It made me think that dads should be included as well because they are important too.

Also some people don’t have a mum and they might find it upsetting.

Awesome, how at such a little age she’s already effecting change.

    Actually! can we just say “loved by kids, approved by guardians”- this is the current world of inclusion.

      How about “loved by kids, approved by grownups and everyone in between”? That should cover it!

      No that’s also wrong. What’s about kids that had to cry before their guardians bought it. It means the guardians didn’t approve it.

      ‘Loved by kids’ is enough! Ditch the approved by yidi yada

      Nonsense and coco puffs

    I am even wondering if the word “parents” is even PC enough?

    Bcos I think another liberal soaked in victimhood is about to write another letter about that.
