Nestles is Expanding Into the US Formula Market

Nestles recently bought baby-food giant Gerber, Inc. As if this isn’t enough they are now planning to purchase Bristol Meyer-Squibb (a nutrition products company). This will include Mead Johnson.

A Note About Illustrations in Milk, Money, and Madness

I have received requests from many people to have permission to use illustrations in Milk, Money, and Madness and my other publications for various good causes. Unfortunately, I do not own most of these illustrations, and therefore the copyright laws make it necessary to get permission from the variety of sources who actually do own it.

If you want to use an illustration in my book, follow these steps:

  • Check the source on the specific illustration!
    • If it says Naomi Baumslag then you need to contact my publisher’s copyright editor, Clare Cox, at (203) 226-3571 x3278.
    • If it doesn’t, you need to contact the source listed beneath the illustration. These illustrations are from various sources and had to be paid for separately.

I’m sorry but that is that: I’d like to let you use these illustrations for a good cause, but I just can’t!
