Kraft Wants You to #LieLikeAParent


Lies are a common ground for parents and Kraft has a new one to help
get kids to eat veggies

Introducing Kraft Salad "Frosting," ranch dressing disguised in a
frosting tube

Let's be honest, parents lie to their kids. It is their secret weapon in
parenting, especially when it comes to food. In fact, 63% of U.S.
parents admit to telling instrumental lies to get their kids to clean up
their plates*. Sometimes an innocent, smart lie is just the only way,
especially as 75% of American kids eat salad only once a week**.

Kraft is introducing Kraft Salad "Frosting," its Kraft
Classic Ranch Dressing disguised in a frosting tube, giving parents a
hand in upping their lie game.

"Innocent lies parents tell their kids help alleviate the pressures of
everyday parenting, and if it gets kids to eat their greens, so be it,"
says Sergio Eleuterio Head of Marketing for Kraft, "Simple
innocent lies are not only part of parenthood, but a true tactic used by
parents everywhere. Kraft Salad 'Frosting' is one lie you won't
feel bad telling your kids."

According to a recent study, Ranch dressing is the most popular dressing
in the United States*** and kids will eat anything with frosting, right?
It's a match made for dinnertime bliss. Now, convincing children to eat
salad, broccoli and carrots may be a whole lot easier. Just add Kraft
Salad "Frosting."
