I told ya your cell phone was fattening! Try not to eat the whole bag next time!

According to the report 31.3% of US adults are eating too many cell phones these days.

Two days ago at WalMart there was an oval woman in front of me with her cart with her Mini Me in it. So sweet to see the bonding there. There was enough love for five people! Cute kid.

The health/weight problems come from the government pushing grains and corn syrup on us, and bowing to corporate farming, effectively turning us into addicts.

Break the chains of addiction. Quit eating that shit.

What politics from both sides wants to teach us is that things are never complex. If you have your little package and something doesn't fit into that package, You don't know what to make of it so you want to dismiss it or then you will have to do the work of reconsidering your assumptions. - Michael Malice

You nailed it. Corn syrup is a biggie! So to speak. Ever notice how food with corn syrup makes you feel hungry? They say it's a hormonal response to the syrup.

Rly? That means you're more commie than Finland! blonde.gif The govt isn't even pushing that here. The plan is to completely phase out added sugar in anything served in public education from pre- to secondary schools. At present there's very little added sugar in any ("free") breakfast, meal or afternoon snack.

By pushing it, Kreeper probably meant the food pyramid we had here in the US with grains located at the bottom of the chart meaning we should eat eating mostly grains. In Finland, the gov't probably pushes reindeer as the staple food.  chuckle.gif

Quote:School meals in Finland
-Investment in learning


The legislation behind the school meals:

The municipalities are responsible for monitoring and evaluating school meals in Finland. The statutory obligations are based on the following:

▪The Basic Education Act (628/1998)
▪The General Upper Secondary Schools Act (629/1998)
▪The Vocational Education and Training Act (630/1998)

The common guideline is a free meal every school day.Section 3 of the Basic Education Act, The
foundation for education’ reads as follows:

1. Education shall be governed by a unified national core curriculum in accordance with this Act.
2. Education shall be provided according to the pupil’s age and capabilities and so as to promote healthy growth and development in the pupil. (Amendment 477/2003)

Section 31 of the Basic Education Act states that pupils attending school must be provided with a properly organised and supervised, balanced meal free of charge every school day.

Education must be governed by a unified national core curriculum, which forms the framework for planning education.

The National Core Curriculum is drawn up by the Finnish National Board of Education. It includes objectives and assessment criteria. Within this framework, schools and municipalities then form their own methods and are free to select their own teaching materials.

As part of the curriculum every municipality is obligated to draw up a plan for pupil welfare. The plan provides the key principles for arranging school meals and sets out the objectives for health and nutritional education and for teaching good manners.

In our municipality those objectives are to provide as much locally and organically produced food as possible, no added sugar in any meal and also one vegetarian day a week.

Wow! That IS impressive!

PS. Not sure about eating vegetarians, however. Oops, I misread it. Slightly surprised by the vegetarian day, however. I've always pictured more frigid climates as being a place with a heavy meat and fat diet.

That kind of policy should pay off big time in student performances and health.

If you saw what students eat here, you would be aghast. It's no wonder that 30% of our teens are on prescription drugs including diabetic medicines and brain drugs.
