    Regarding the responsibility of schools, they do bear some blame for bad eating habits of children. The school lunches that have been offered to my children have been nutritional disasters. Pizza, nachos, chicken nuggets and french fries have been staples at every school they have attended – and they’ve been to schools across the country. School lunch programs are required to “offer” fruits and vegetables. They can save money by “offering” a vegetable that no one accepts. Feed the entire school with one can of peas! All the kids can share one can of apricots!
    So, of course parents have influence on their children, but schools can do a lot more than remove sodas from vending machines. That is truly the least they can do.

    As a professional naturopath I could not agree with you more about children learning poor eating habits from their parents. When dealing with obese or ADD/ADHD children in my clinic, I am often treating the “whole family” as far a re-educating them on what foods are foods and what is garbage.
    Also I would like to point you to a therapy that I practice exclusively and have been deriving a great deal of success with for my diabetic patients here in Australia that could be of use to you and perhaps your readers, visit to view more about it or just visit my blog link. I have had lots of success with it and it is available in the USA as well I am sure. I very much enjoyed your writings and will refer my readers for some information.
    Have a great day!

    I couldn’t agree with you more about salads. More often than not, when my family dines out my only option is a highly overpriced salad that is not nearly as nutritious or satisfying as the ones that I prepare at home for $1. With diabetes on the rise in the US I don’t understand why restaurants don’t develop more alternatives for this growing consumer group. Could it be restaurants don’t understand how to prepare food that is diabetic friendly? Or do they just like the huge margins they are making on a bowl of iceberg lettuce and three tomato slices?
