Did anyone listen to the Dying to Eat program on National Public Radio on Monday night? It talked about the rising obesity in today’s youth, and also interviewed several kids.
What amazed me the most is that the age for obesity in kids just keeps getting lower and lower. The things the parents feed their kids are awful. Pizza, chicken fingers, toaster strudells. I’m not saying a kid needs to follow a strict super clean eating regimen, but stuff like that on a regular basis is just bad. Buy a grill and throw some meat on it if they are hungry.
It was nice to see that some of the teenagers had actually made a change through better eating habits and attending excercise type camps. But those arnt cheap. The price for one of those camps is a thousand bucks a month.
If i ever have kids they are getting good eating habits from the start.
