Feeding children junk is feeding them disrespect. If we can afford to squander multi-hundred $$$ billions for bank bailouts and $100 million for each fighter plane and sky-high tax cuts for Bentley-driving fat cats, we can instead afford to buy and distribute proper food for the adults under construction who are the next generation. Or else the next generation is going to be even more unhealthy than the current one. Obesity, kidney disease, arteriosclerosis, you get the picture. The...

Feeding children junk is feeding them disrespect. If we can afford to squander multi-hundred $$$ billions for bank bailouts and $100 million for each fighter plane and sky-high tax cuts for Bentley-driving fat cats, we can instead afford to buy and distribute proper food for the adults under construction who are the next generation. Or else the next generation is going to be even more unhealthy than the current one. Obesity, kidney disease, arteriosclerosis, you get the picture. The pharmaceutical companies exult at the prospect of lifelong prescriptions--the ruthless pr***s already want to shove anti-cholesterol statin drugs into children--but it should be our mission in life to greatly decrease their market and profits.
This is not at all about lack of resources, this is about failing to prioritize and spend them properly, and about the selfish, misguided human slime in places of power and administration who we empower to make decisions about our health and the health of our children.

Hello Mark Mc Kennon I totally agree with you! Thankfully there is also a company that agrees with us! They have put together a simple way to get nutrition into kids, and a mission to cure malnutrition! Please check this out! It may be something you find exciting! :) www.navig8.me/475884

I'm french and I vote 15%, because of well know bad nutrition in USA (I do not know is how this is the case, it's just the vision that we have of the outside). It's used to tell that French have a good diet but I'm sure we are under 50%, so less than one in two children, perhaps childs are not the priority of many countries..., not to mention those who don't have access because of poverty.

:) I would like to share something really exciting in helping the kids (and adults) get more nutrients from food (rather than vitamin pills!) This company donates to orphanages and to children with life threatening illness, reports come back "Amazing Health Improvements!" Of course they would, Its the nutrients missing from our modern diet! Nature has it RIGHT! www.navig8.me/475884 Please check this out, message me. Lets do what we can to help! :) Thank You!

While we are addressing this issue, how many children (and their parents) are being poisoned by flouridated water? Fluoride harms us in many ways. One way is by killing brain cells. It can and does make people sick. I wonder how many suicides weren't from depression, but were from mixing fluoride with an illness plus medication?

Nuts as almond seeds , a few pistachio seeds unroasted, a few peanut seeds unsalted, a walnut seed, a chestnut seed unsalted,... These nuts are very good as I told you every day or few days in place of any killer snack. Pack these in a bag when going out.

Watermelon and sugar beet are also so important in vitamins, antioxidants and minerals. ******

My girls eat four to five serving of fruit a day and at least two servings of veggies too. That's just in their lunch. When at home, they eat fruit and veggies all day. I truly believe that you have to eat live food daily.. It's sad that this is not the feelings of most Americans.. Junk and fast food is way too easy to get. Soda is also one of the biggest problems.

Change the KILLER bag of chips for an apple and a few cabbage leaves in a snack box you take to work, school, university even. University food is ALSO fatty, not so great and so on. Take a whole box of different fruits in their place with a sandwich full of true flavor not mustard, ketchup, garlic made in barbecue restaurants, mayonnaise, and corn syrup. Change the juices TOTALLY to a big bottle of water. Grow YOUR OWN GARDEN OF VEGETABLES organically protected and grown too as I produce my...

I grew many vegetables but the trees, roses took over the small backyard garden.
