I’ve been thinking a lot about kids and food lately, and I’m wondering what it’s like in your family. I feel as though we’ve been given so much information about good nutrition that I don’t understand how so many kids are turning up at school with junk in their lunchbags (when they bring their lunch, that is).
Is it that people don’t really know what constitutes good nutrition, or is it that we know what’s healthy but everyone’s too busy to buy and prepare it? Could it be that parents today are less likely to take a strong stand with their kids, and if the kids say they won’t eat something, no matter how healthy it might be, parents decide not to fight them on it? Or maybe all of the above?
