Modern Diet

Teens’ greens intake slips into red | The Australian

MOST children eat less fruit and vegetables than they need to stay healthy, and load up their plates with food and drink so laced with sugar, salt and saturated fat they exceed dietary recommendations.

It’s got to the stage where a lot of people wear the modern diet as a badge of honour. Our statistics say we have far more overweight adults than we have children . Adults are in charge of children and their diet and we are not competent enough to feed out young and ourselves properly. We are just stupid when it comes to nutrition and the manufacturers play on that stupidity. They just make it and we just eat it.
