Wisdom from the ages

“The consumption of sugar and other relatively pure carbohydrates has become so great during recent years that it presents a serious obstacle to the improved nutrition of the general public”  This was quoted from the American Medical Association in 1942!  Can you believe it?  The more things change, the more they stay the same, but in this case, it grows.  I am reminded of how diet can effect our current and long term health in very major ways.

I recently heard of a program for teaching kids about nutrition.  It categorized foods in green, yellow and red light groups.  The kids then can monitor their own red light foods, decreasing the number per week gradually.  It seems to work better than the parents always being the food police.  PS, it works for grown-ups too.
