    Considering the high quality of British food, the Daily Mail feels that it can pontificate about American school lunches.


    Apparently, they think American school children would be much better off eating toads (a very common British lunch-time offering) for their lunch. And I can’t even repeat the Spotted British dish here.

    Kids usually hate the notion of a healthy school lunch because their parents feed them highly processed junk food at home. Type 2 diabetes used to be referred to as adult onset diabetes. Now we’re seeing teens and even some kids getting diagnosed with the disease largely caused by obesity, bad diet and lack of exercise.

    Cheap to produce, cheap to buy, quick to fix, immediately gratifying, habit-forming – the perfect consumer product.
    .
    A magazine cartoon from years ago: Ad executives shown around the conference table, apparently discussing the marketing of a breakfast cereal. One person says to the boss, “Strictly off the top of my head, of course, B.B. — why not make it slightly addictive?”
    .
    And then when medication for the ills caused by poor diet is needed later in life, that market is covered, too.
    .
    My question is, if this stuff is nutritionally deficient, why are kids growing so tall? Is tall healthier? Even so, from what I read, children in some European countries have passed U.S. children in average height. What is the differing factor?

    I would think everyone would be in favor of trying to get kids to eat a healthy meal. I mean, who would be against that? The only down side is there will be resistance to change and the fast food people might make a little less money.

    Yep, that’s what our kids need! Fat, Salt and cancer causing Preservatives, in huge quantities!

    That could take care of overpopulation and the social security shortfall….

    “why are kids growing so tall?”

    Growth hormones added to animal feed to encourage the animals to mature faster; more generations can be slaughtered in a year. You might also note other effects of this policy: 13-year-old boys growing full beards, and 8-year-old girls becoming sexually mature. “It’s not nice to fool Mother Nature.”

    It has been predicted (and I have no reason to doubt this) that one out of every three American children under the age of 8 will be diabetic before they become 21.

    If you think health care costs a lot now……..

    Children have always rebelled against healthy food. Why do we abdicate our responsibility as adults?

    @Jase99

    Type 2 is also called, “the poor man’s disease” because of the cheap food that it takes to produce one. Cheap food designed by scientists to make you want to eat more and more…

    They are adapting by becoming sick. The other would be to stop eating that food designed to reach their bliss with every bite.

    @Night-Gaunt49

    I like that “bliss with every bite.” I wonder if in that regard there would be a cooking show called “The Orgasmic Gourmet”?

    Well, God forbid the food industry adapt to anything but marketing. That would be Bad For Business.
