But isn't teaching moderation a form of teaching proper nutrition? I get what you are saying and agree, I am a full on moderation type mom, but after seeing his first show and getting more involved with other families as my kids grow and start making friends, etc. and going to my daughter's school, I clearly see that many many people think its just fine to send their small children to school with a coke and ring dings every day. I have also found that those most opposed to teaching nutrition, etc., are those that already do practice good nutrition/moderation. I always see posts like "no one is going to tell ME what to feed my kids, they eat quinoa and spinach all day every day" (exaggeration, lol, but you get the point) and I just don't see the reason to be against it. Its like saying you don't want the dentist to come and teach your kid good oral care because they already brush their teeth, why?
