- Food is cheaper.
- People are not getting enough exercise or activity.
- With less time to prepare foods, people eat out in restaurants more...and we all know that restaurant food is less healthy and more fattening than most food made at home.
Mike informed me that the younger kids love to go along to Chris' orthodontist's office because the waiting room has juice and soda pop. WTF??? That is the stupidest thing I've ever heard. I didn't have any cavities until I was 15--because I had braces. Are they trying to give kids cavities?
Although I am not worried about my kids being overweight, I do worry about their teeth (and about consuming high-fructose corn syrup). We never buy pop at home. I think we are rare that way.
