Tesco say that they felt it is their duty to reconnect food for children, as 80% of parents feel that their children are not as healthy as they were when they themselves were children. However whose fault is that? The grocer? The teacher? Or the people? Who is best to turn the health of the nation around?
It wasn't until after the births of my son and daughter that I became increasingly aware of how difficult it was to teach children how to eat healthy in a very unhealthy world of processed, sugar laden and artificially coloured foods. I was becoming even more aware of how challenging it was to find enough time to prepare healthy meals and snacks with our busy family schedule.
I recently had the opportunity to make a rare work trip to Huntington, West Virginia. Since Pittsburgh is only a five-hour drive away from Huntington, I assumed that it had similar characteristics to my hometown, technically the largest city in Appalachia. While our accents were different, the warmth of the people in Huntington was definitely not.
