The problem I have with the school teaching nutrition is that they only teach one opinion. Usually, low fat. I happen to not believe in a low fat diet. We eat a higher fat, lower carb diet in my house. And what about vegetarians? Why not teach a variety of diets and how to follow them?
then, if a child is interested in being a vegetarian, they can do it it a healthy manner. Same for low carb, learn that it does not mean you eat bacon all day, lol.
kids learn about all the religions in school, why not also teach all the major diet plans?
