California Department of Public Health's, Network for a Healthy California "Childhood Obesity and Type 2 Diabetes I didn't know" TV Commercial

The following ad is now airing in California, with a eat more fruits and vegetables campaign. The ad's target audience is the Latino Community (their words, not mine) and a lot of people are offended, think the ad is depressing, etc etc. My only problem is that most of my Latino friends already eat a ton of fruit and vegetables, and introduced me to Mexican Fruit Salad with chili and lime. I added the recipe below, it's amazing and if you have never had it, you must ... its healthy and its so great!! In fact, there is a new chili spice called Tajin, which would be perfect or you can use whatever you have on hand.

Here is the ad:

Here is the recipe:
Ingredients: Cut up the following in same size chunk pieces:
Mango, pineapple, papaya, watermelon, cantaloupe, honeydew, cucumber, jicama, and shaved coconut
Then squeeze about 1 tablespoon of lime over one bowl of the fruit and vegetable mixture
Add kosher or sea salt and Tajin or Pico de Gallo chili spice to flavor, ENJOY!
If you dont want to purchase all of these fruits, you can get plastic containers of chunked fruit at any market, then just add the lime juice, kosher salt and chili spice.
