Do you agree with revamping school menus, offering healthy choices, limiting certain fats and posting nutrition information in an effort to educate children and adults or do you think everyone should just stay out of it and if people are fat just assume that it's because they want to be that way and let them figure it out on there own???Answer Question
I don't know anyone who has said "oh yes, let me start down the path to obesity". It depends on where it's coming from. Is it hereditary? Is eating too much fast food to blame? If someone WANTS to be obese, more power to them. No, education should not be shoved down their throats because it's their body and that's what they've decided. To those who do want to learn about nutrition and a healthy diet, yes educate, educate, educate. :)

I just joined weight watchers with my 18 yr old dd and we are both loosing weight. It has been amazing to LEARN about calories and cholesterol. The point system weight watchers uses is so educational, we even take a calculator to the grocery store. It hasnt been a horrible diet either, its retraining yourself to eat healthy. I would love to see a class like this in the high schools. We had a booster meeting for a school class the other night at Subway, it was a fund raiser and I bought subs. I havent bought fast food in months. Not only was it super expensive, but it didnt taste half as good as the food we make at home now.
