This ad from the forties predated any attempt at truth in advertising. The text is a little hard to read, it says: HOW SOON IS TOO SOON?
Not soon enough. Laboratory tests over the last few years have proven that babies who start drinking soda during the early formative period have a much higher chance of gaining acceptance and 'fitting in' during those awkward pre-teen and teen years. So do yourself a favor, Do your child a favor. Start them on a strict regimen of soda and other sugary carbonated beverages right now for a lifetime of guaranteed happiness. THE SODA POP BOARD OF AMERICA

Next to the bottle of cola, it says: Promotes active lifestyle, Boosts personality, Gives body essential sugars.

Holy mackarel, Besides rotting all the childs teeth before he's old enough to drive, he's a caffeine junkie before he's in school. Luckily our mother's were too smart for stupid ads like this.
