Comments: Food Section Digest - July 22, 2004


I like the idea of educating kids about where their food comes from. It seems logical that a kid who helps grow and then eats fruit or vegetables from the garden is going to make healthy choices. A trip to a factory would also be edifying so they could see how processed foods are processed.

I think it's a great idea, but I doubt you can keep the kids away from twinkies and cup cakes no matter how many tomatoes they plant. Of course, if the schools continue to force sodas and french fries on kids for lunch, it's a losing battle. Did you see Super Size Me? Sad to see what kids are served. Many of my relatives work in education, and the soda manufactures have bought many districts as surely as the NRA owns congress.
