Here's what I don't understand...
The recent scuttlebutt is that there are more *starving* and *hungry* children than ever before, who aren't receiving adequate nutrition at home. Because of these poor starving children, we have been getting foodstamps out in record amounts, because everybody is so ashamed that as a nation we are starving our children.
So...how does the increase in childhood obesity work with that dialogue? And if our children are starving and school meal programs are more important than ever to make sure they don't starve to death...then WHY are we reducing the 1. Calorie count, and 2. protein amount, in those meals?
And could someone please direct me to a study that links OBESE CHILDREN with STARVATION?
"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
So..why are we reducing caloric intake in school cafeterias at a time when (allegedly) childhood hunger is at an all-time high?
This does not compute.
