What’s Eating Our Kids? Fears About ‘Bad’ Foods – NYTimes.com

I’m all for trying to eat healthy.  Low fat, low sodium, easy on the processed food and trying to keep white sugar to a minimum.  I’m not exactly successful some days.  Others, not so bad.  It’s sad though when kids  get so fixated as displayed in the article.  On the flip side, my wife once took care of a child who would only eat chicken tenders and ramen, the complete opposite of healthy.

I think this quote sums up the article best though:

“It’s a tragedy that we’ve developed this moralistic, restrictive and unhappy relationship” with eating, she said. “I think it is making kids nutty, it’s sucking the life out of our relationship with food.”

Bon appetit!
