Chocolate = good, child exploitation = bad: how to reconcile them?

Chocolate is always good, but not the people who sell it.

Nestle's poor record on infant feeding isn't the only way they harm families and children. I learned of the ugly side of the chocolate industry just recently - it's very disturbing to think that the things that make my kids so happy (COCO-lat!) begin with the cruel exploitation of others.

So, this Easter, it's all fair trade for us - and that's ok because it's also higher quality chocolate than the waxy junk!
