If Kids Designed the Food Pyramid…
Last week I posted this cartoon on Facebook as a cute “Happy Friday” cartoon. And it is cute, and it does make me laugh.
Then it got me thinking about free will and choice and innate knowing and all those topics. I’ve heard stories about vegetarian-fed kids eating a whole pound of bacon or butter because those kids knew their body needed the healthy fat in that food. I’ve seen photo evidence (more than just this one) of squirrels preferring butter over margarine.
Michele Simon at Appetite for Profit considers poor eating habits a result of a social and economic environment that does not support healthy food choices. What do you think? Why do you chose the foods you eat?
