As a adult do you make all of your food by scratch with just the basic ingredients? Are you implying that its childish to use foods that have been combined together? Seriously think about what you are saying, because it appears that you expect people on SNAP to be treated as if they live in the 1800's.It doesn't interfere with personal choice and it isn't overly protective. Nannies would prepare food for the wee ones, whereas adults would buy ingredients and make food for themselves and their families. If anything, our current system is more of a nanny, for viewing adult level responsibilities as way too much to expect from adults just because they don't happen to have a lot of money.
