Can healthy eating be
forced on children?

BBC News [UK], by Rajini Vaidyanathan

Original Article

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

Comments:
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.

Australian warplanes are being deployed to the Middle East to join the US-led campaign of air strikes on jihadist targets in northern Iraq, Defense Minister David Johnston said on Monday. "We will provide a number of military platforms, up to eight Super Hornet aircraft to participate in a US-led coalition in delivering air strikes," he told reporters in Baghdad after meeting Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi.

Barren land, dams with no water reaching them, boats anchored in dried-up reservoirs and shrinking lake levels. These extraordinary images show the devastating impact the worst droughts in decades is having on the American West - and forecasters have predicted it is likely to continue. Around 430,000 acres of land will be left fallow in California - because there hasn´t been enough rain or snow coming from the nearby mountain ranges. Farmers - who are daily facing the prospect of losing their jobs and everything they have - are hoping for relief this winter, but the situation still remains dire.

Tony Blair is right. Before you harrumph and turn away, listen to his argument. It is--in short--that there is a global threat from militant Islamism. That it is spreading--and it is getting worse. And that we must act. It is clear that there is a fundamental problem with radical Islamism; clear that it is deep; clear that the solutions are not easy or presently to hand; clear that this is the work of a generation, not an election cycle; and clear--most important of all--that this is "our" challenge and not simply "theirs".

Turkey has begun to close some of its border crossings with Syria after about 130,000 Kurdish refugees entered the country over the weekend. On Sunday Turkish security forces clashed with Kurds protesting in solidarity with the refugees. Some protesters were reportedly trying to go to Syria to fight Islamic State (IS). Most refugees are from Kobane, a town threatened by the advancing militants. IS has taken over large swathes of Iraq and Syria in recent months. Before the latest influx, there were already more than one million Syrian refugees in Turkey. They have fled since the start of the uprising against Syrian President Bashar

Kurdish fighters have issued an urgent call to arms amid warnings of an impending massacre by the Islamic State terrorist group in northern Syria. The Kurdish People´s Protection Unit (YPG) has been locked in a fierce battle with IS and other Islamist groups almost since the start of Syria´s civil war. Despite being relatively isolated and receiving no foreign aid from any states the YPG has proven perhaps the most effective force in pushing back against IS. But as the jihadis´ focus shifts to consolidating power in northern Syria the Kurds have found themselves under fiercer attack than ever.

I know a lot of people are giddy at the prospect of Republicans taking the Senate this November, but that’s becoming less and less likely. It’s not because Democrats are rallying around a particular mission or set of candidates; it’s because Republicans and conservatives aren’t. It seems like I’m always writing on issues no one wants to hear are mistakes, such as messaging or social issues. But I don’t care. These things have to be said. If these columns are received like a gaseous cousin on a long car trip through the desert, so be it. Crack a window… If things continue on their current course, the GOP will not retake the Senate.

It was once said, “religion is designed to comfort the afflicted and to afflict the comfortable.” Jesus’ parables – short stories with moral lessons – were likewise designed to afflict, to draw us in but leave us uncomfortable. These teachings can be read as being about divine love and salvation, sure. But, their first listeners – first century Jews in Galilee and Judea – heard much more challenging messages. Only when we hear the parables as Jesus’ own audience did can we fully experience their power and find ourselves surprised and challenged today. Here are four examples of Jesus’ teachings that everybody gets wrong: 1.

When Anthony Weiner’s mayoral campaign imploded last year amid new sexting revelations, the fallout buffeted his wife, longtime Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin. Clinton’s inner circle was furious with Weiner, and Abedin’s role with Hillary was said to be in doubt. “Huma has a choice to make,” New York magazine quoted a “close associate” of Abedin’s as saying. “Does she go with Anthony, or does she go with Hillary?” The magazine described Abedin as “traumatized” by the prospect of leaving the inner sanctum. One year later, Abedin’s marriage to Weiner appears intact, and her role in Hillary’s camp is secure. As Clinton’s personal chief
