Can healthy eating be
forced on children?

BBC News [UK], by Rajini Vaidyanathan

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 7/19/2014 6:02:26 PM

First Lady Michelle Obama has been at the forefront of the campaign to change school meals in America and fight childhood obesity. But can you force children to eat healthily? It´s almost lunchtime in the school canteen at Friendship Woodridge Elementary School in Washington DC. Today´s menu is potato ravioli, a romaine salad and whole wheat breadsticks, served with fat-free milk. For desert, a banana. "It´s a very healthy menu," says lunch lady Katrina Fitzgerald as she ladles a helping of ravioli on to a plate. "They used to complain but they don´t too much now, I think they´re used

Potato ravioli? With romaine salad, wholewheat breadstick and a banana?

Carb overload. These kids aren´t getting nearly enough protein, according to this lunch description.

Forced? No. But a household like the one I was raised in, that quite frankly hadn´t the means to buy a lot of sweets and junk food, but where well-prepared, flavorful, good basic food is the priority, will tend to foster good eating habits. Special occasions brought out wonderful homemade birthday cakes, strawberry shortcakes, and homemade chocolate chip cookies. But they were not part of our daily fare.

Trips to other kids´ houses, indulgences in sweets and fries, all those exceptions, don´t necessarily create a craving. But nagging, hectoring, of the kind Mooch does is the fastest way to drive a child into rebellion in any area of their life.

If the culture of the home is healthy, the child should grow up with healthy habits.

Of course healthy eating be
taught to children by their parents, as parents are the first and most important teachers.

I think all of us as kids were told to eat our vegetables or there´s no desert. Clean your plate, there are starving children in China. Families sat down together and ate meals at the end of the day. My mom always packed a lunch for me. A healthy society can take care of itself. Mooch doesn´t want to admit the damage her leftist values have wrought. Destroying the family and devaluing life has real consequences. She wants to hide the consequences. She´s a sick woman.

Of course, #2. But remember what Michelle said a few weeks ago? That she, a Princeton and Harvard grad, didn´t know how to feed her kids healthy foods. Her message was that if SHE, a great brain and Ivy Leaguer, didn´t know how to put together a decent meal. how could any of us peasants with IQs of, say, 138, know how to do so?

The ultimate meaning of her words: "You idiots are too stupid to eat right, so some government bureaucrat with an IQ of 90 will tell you how."

Healthy eating is taught at home by example. Hypocrite parents like Mooch and Obie? Kids see through them at a surprisingly young age. From an early age they they see through the "do as I say, not as I do" philosophy.

Chubby little Destiny (photo with article) would probably eat anything her lookalike Mooch told her to.

In trying to get black kids to eat healthier, Mooch has erroneously decided to treat this as an all kids, across the board problem. How like them to turn the entire country on its head to solve a problem within their own minority constituency.

Here is a solution. The cafeterias that members of Congress use can only serve what is allowed in school cafeterias Or school cafeterias are free to serve whatever members of Congress have available to them.

You can lead a horse to water, but you cant mkr him drink. Children need to be taught how to make healthy choices.

The parents are in charge of diet, not the government. Michelle Obama needs to butt out of our lives.

The question is, is this low-fat diet really healthier? Children need fat in their diets for good bone and muscle development.

This isn´t to say that eating junk food or foods soaked in butter is good. The thing is, it goes back to parenting.

Parenting involves common sense and practical wisdom (as Aristotle calls it). In our times, using the mind is just not encouraged. How do you feeeeel about it, eh?

There are children growing up in homes where not much parenting --in the true sense of the word/concept-- is going on.

Stalinist´s come up with these ideas without any proof they work. In a sane world, they would roll this out on a limited basis, and see what happens.

When the talking food carts end up being stolen by the homeless, and the food stamp types figure out a way to rip off the system and get what they want, the idea could be quietly shuttered without embarrassment and vast waste.

Instead (like Obamacare), the idea is what´s important, not if it actually works (or is even the Governments business at all).

Stalinist´s..this is what they do

To paraphrase ol´ Joe Stalin himself, sometimes the worker has to be crushed to usher in the worker´s paradise.

No, "healthy" eating cannot be forced on children or anyone else.

A vegetable (except corn on the cob) has not knowingly passed my lips since I was four years old. My mom made good meals and we ate dinner together as a family. I just didn´t like vegetables. Mom did all the "mom" things; no dessert, no leaving the table until my plate was clean, etc. It didn´t work. To give up dessert was a small price to pay in order not to eat the green stuff. I soon figured out (above mentioned four years old) that sooner or later Mom was going to have to put me to bed. I would just wait her out. Being the youngest of a full-time working mom (in the 50´s and 60´s) I think she just didn´t want the fight. By the time I was six she gave up.

I am a healthy a trim 60-year old with no fat, no heart problems, good bones and muscles, no high blood pressure. I do take one-a-day vitamins. Vegetables are not necessary to be healthy.

Amen and amen again, OP and #10.

As a family friend, who happens to be a well-respected trauma surgeon, says, the USDA´s carb-heavy "food pyramid" is the perfect roadmap to slow suicide-by-fork, which (paraphrasing the Reagan administration´s "Nation at Risk" report on education), If an unfriendly foreign power had attempted to impose it, we might well have viewed as an act of war.

Given the opportunity, with wise counsel and good examples from their parents, children eventually will find their own healthy levels, for food and exercise and everything else.

Meanwhile, by all means, let the Mooch munch what she mandates, and nothing else.

Sorry, North Korea Conspiracists:
Kim Jong Un Is Probably Just Sick
Time, by Hannah Beech    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 10/3/2014 12:14:02 PM     Post Reply
It has been precisely a month since corpulent young dictator Kim Jong Un disappeared from public view, prompting frenzied speculation about his health and the state of political play in North Korea. Kim was last seen at a Sept. 3 concert, ensconced in a red easy chair next to his wife, Ri Sol Ju. Late last month, the youthful marshal was a no-show at a meeting of North Korea’s rubber-stamp legislature. The cloistered nation’s state-run TV aired images of his seat at parliament—empty. But North Korea experts say that the likeliest reason is also the simplest: That the Supreme Leader

Three US citizens are fighting in Syria, the British Daily Mail reports Friday. But unlike most foreign nationals, they are fighting against - not for - jihadists. One of the Americans has been identified as Jordan Matson (28) from Racine, Wisconsin, a spokesman for the private Pashmerga army, the Kurdish People´s Protection Units (YPG), said Thursday. Matson is a former US Army soldier now "fighting in the Jazaa area," the spokesman added - an area riddled by heavy fighting between Islamic State (ISIS) and Kurdish forces in northeast Syria. The US has not blacklisted the YPG as a terrorist organization, but it does

Hospitals across the country have been warned by the CDC about care methods regarding the Ebola virus, it has emerged. The CDC has published both an ´Algorithm for Evaluation of the Returned Traveler,´ as well as a ´Checklist for Patients Being Evaluated for Ebola Virus Diseasee (EVD) in the United States.´ Ebola patient Thomas Eric Duncan arrived in Dallas on September 20 to visit and fell ill a few days later.

A friend of Texas Ebola patient, Thomas Duncan, who saw the sick man the day he was taken into hospital apparently ´vomiting wildly´ has described his family´s ordeal in isolation. And, shockingly, three days after CDC officials visited him in the family´s apartment, 43-year-old Aaron Yah revealed he had not received an order to remain indoors or any advice on how to cope. Speaking exclusively to MailOnline, Mr Yah said: ´The CDC came on Tuesday, the day it was confirmed Thomas had Ebola. They told me that the children should not go to school until 17 October.

Climate change is even deadlier than ebola according to the editor of one of the world´s oldest and most distinguished medical journals. Fiona Godlee, editor in chief of the BMJ (formerly the British Medical Journal; established 1840), claims in her latest editorial: Deaths from Ebola infection, tragic and frightening though they are, will pale into insignificance when compared with the mayhem we can expect for our children and grandchildren if the world does nothing to check its carbon emissions. And action is needed now. Not all BMJ readers will necessarily agree with this assessment, Godlee concedes: When The BMJ started publishing articles on climate

Approaching half of all terrorist plots against Britain are still hatched in Afghanistan and Pakistan 13 years after British troops were sent to the country to destroy Al Qaeda, David Cameron revealed this morning. The Prime Minister, in Kabul on an unannounced visit to meet with the country’s new unity government, said Britain had ‘paid a very high price’ for liberating Afghanistan from the Taliban--with 453 British soldiers losing their lives. Mr Cameron claimed Britain and other allies had forced Al Qaeda out the region and the number of plots originating in the region had fallen. But he admitted the

A cameraman working for NBC News in Liberia has become the fourth American to contract the deadly Ebola virus.

The quintessential question of Watergate was “what did the President know and when did he know it?” Obamagate, the vast scandal that encompasses an entire presidency, offers a preemptive answer. Obama didn’t know anything and he never knew it. At least not until, like smuggling weapons to druglords, bugging journalists, IRSing his political enemies and killing vets, his right hand found out about what his left hand was doing from the morning paper. After skipping 58% of his daily intelligence briefings in Term 1 and 59% of them in Term 2, he went on 60 Minutes and blamed intelligence agencies for being

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false.

In her just-released memoir, 27 year-old "Girls" star Lena Dunham claims that as a 19 year-old Oberlin College student in Ohio, she was raped by a college Republican. In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow. The most sensational moment comes from the fact that "Barry" wasn´t wearing a condom. In the next chapter, Dunham backtracks with the claim that she´s an "unreliable narrator" and accuses "Barry" of rape: [I]n another essay in this book I describe a sexual encounter with a mustachioed campus Republican as the upsetting but

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which

WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety. Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in

While the content is vicious, angry and sure to tickle conservative journalists and pols, the writing is colorful, even entertaining.“A slapdash Secret Service detail isn’t what’s wrong with the White House — the real scandal is a President who is so complacent about protecting Americans,” the headline blares.

Go to a grocery store in California and buy all the milk, eggs and vegetables you want. But there’s one thing you won’t find at the checkout line, beginning July 1, 2015: Plastic bags to carry your stuff home. Gov. Jerry Brown (D) on Tuesday signed into law a ban on single-use plastic bags, making California the first state to prohibit stores from using the ubiquitous carry-alls. Shoppers will be charged 10 cents for every paper bag and heavy-duty plastic bag they use. “This bill is a step in the right direction,” Brown said in a press release announcing his approval. “It
