Like so many of my fellow bloggers on here today, I too have see the recent news story regarding the child that had their lunch taken away and replaced with an alternative so called “healthier” lunch by their school. I am totally appalled! Anyone can do a simple search online about the contents of those “Chicken Nuggets ” and willl find way more than they bargined for if it’s an accurate representation of the ingredients which would reveal just for starters, meat being washed by various chemicals like Ammonia (If you really want to call it meat in the first place). Most Chicken nuggets are barely meat but rather, beaks and other parts from the chicken that in past generations, used to be disposed of in the garbage. Even if the homemade sandwich of turkey that was sent with the child to school was processed, it did not contain the breading with all the added high fructose corn syrup & other food additives that can be found in the coating of most “Nuggets”. Eating processed foods such as Chicken Nuggets has been proven to contribute to much of the rise in disease in this country, and when excluded, has proven to prevent Cancer, Diabetes, Heart Attack, Stoke, obesity and the list just goes on and on! There are a multitude of better alternatives such as fermented foods, real veggies, more fruits with lower glucose levels than the bananna and all natural grass-fed organic meats so if they are going to do the “policing” (of which I strongly disagree) , at least they could get it right!
This is also a sad commentary on what is happening in this country and evidence that food safety and nutrition is now in the hands of people with little or no knowlege of what healthy food really is supposed to consist of. We’ve got to wake people up in this country regarding health with more accurately represented information and even more importantly, the freedoms that we Americans have been losing too often more in today’s “Big Brother” world. Please contine to connect with your Senators and Congress people with feedback on issues such as this example, that clearly show these government agencies need to get out of our homes, kitchens and our lives!
