I took my children to the museum earlier this week. I was shocked by how many obese parents and children there were. If you are obese, I am not in judgment of you, I am more than hopeful that I can help you. I know something is seriously wrong with the way Americans eat when I can actually walk to McD’s, but I have to get in a car to go pick up fresh produce.
I understand that there are many parents in my generation who were not taught to cook at home and home ec was pretty much fazed out when I went to school. To be perfectly honest, looking at how many children are morbidly overweight, I am shocked.
My grandmother tells me that when she was young it was very rare to see a fat person. She has a lot to say about the current situation. Most of her observations are true. I, like my grandmother believe that fast food should not be a regular dinner option, if an option at all. In fact, fast food, is a breakfast, lunch and dinner option for many, many families. When I came across this TED talk, I had to share it with you all and hopefully you will share the information Jamie Oliver puts forth with everyone you know.
