    Thumbs up for veggies and fruits, though, as well as eliminating the sugar drinks.

    Just a funny story regarding kids.


    My son is Primal without even knowing it, or me enforcing it. He's 5years old, and has only consumed two liquids in his life: Breast milk for 18months, and then water. His cousins chase him with their sippy cups full of juice/soda/crap, cause they know he won't even touch a cup with anything but water in it. I'm hoping he keeps it that way, but you never know now with him starting school in the fall.

    "Principals will now offer low-fat pizza on a wheat crust" "And along with other schools in the state, the district got vending machines with low fat snacks and sugar-free drinks." Oh yea please do that but then you will have to readjust the graph for what obesity rates are going to be in 2015... I mean why make fast food supposedly healthy if you can just cut them out?! Is that not common sense? But really they are just interested in appearing concerned to the media.

    Sweet, Pretzels are a healthy snack and much cheaper than my bag of almonds, and much more convinient than washing those darn carrots!


    Next well have people recomending cheesies as a good source of calcium.

    I would eat crisps/potato chips like a shot if they fried them in animal fat - or would palm oil work? At any rate all the ones I&#39;ve seen are fried in polyunsaturated vegetable oils, which are quite nasty. The same goes for chips/French fries. I think the Belgians still fry theirs in beef fat. They&#39;re probably the only ones left who do.


    To be fair, the "winning answer" does state:

    I think that&#39;s interesting. It shows that the notion that carbohydrate-rich foods perhaps aren&#39;t a good thing is getting through. I&#39;d suspect that&#39;s via the Atkins diet, and also I&#39;d suspect that suspicion is more typical in the U.S. than elsewhere, despite America&#39;s seeming love affair with those types of food.

    The best tortilla chips have always been fried in lard. Still are where Big Agra via NAFTA hasn&#39;t taken over. Usually only found in a few restaurants in the US any more, everyone wants those healthy oils...you know the ones that break down at high temps into free radicals.

    I&#39;ve got some "blue corn" chips in the larder that I bought awhile back. Those are Dutch made and state only maize, seasalt, and non-hydrogenated palm oil. So I guess not every maker uses agribusiness trash to fry in.

    Wow... I had one heck of a dream last night. I was standing in the lunch line in grade school, horrified at my options, thinking "I should have packed my lunch." Really strange dream- lol.


    Until parents figure out what&#39;s healthy for their kids and what isn&#39;t, there will be no stopping childhood obesity.


    I was a fat kid, and my parents indulged me with the snack cakes, the fruit snacks, the toaster strudles for breakfast, and so on. I don&#39;t think they actually meant any harm, but observing my mom now, I just don&#39;t think she knows any better. Dinner HAS to include rice, or pasta, or potatoes, or something.


    Most people just "know" that grain is healthy, no matter what form. When you&#39;re living under a certain paradigm, it&#39;s hard to change.
