I do not propose dietary laws aimed exclusively at forced veganism.
You could under such a draconian regime dictate whatever society wants to feed it's people and young people surely.
What is draconian about working towards ensuring that children receive a healthy diet?
But your laws would have to prescribe as well as proscribe. What a nightmare.
Including dry weetabix and protein powder?
You would have to prescribe for children on limited diets.
This raises a wider issue of why we care and in turn likely links to public Vs private costs and benefits, which in turn links to freedoms and their consequences to individuals and society.
It's a bit of a big topic.
Front of the paper today... calorie caps on meals in restaurants.
If it can be done for adults why not for children?
Should have had a calorie cap on Christmas dinner yeaterday, putting the chestnuts in with the sprouts upped the ante substantially.
Then again if everyone was paid the same via some type of payment *thinking back to Eureka, then we could manage everyones diet through rationing and state issue of food stamps... Everyone could be issued a house, those with lots could have it taken away to pay for the rest, no hunger, no homeless all fair.... No?
*Again tongue in cheek, though this would apparently satisfy "the many".
Know that feeling very well myself.
My mother's idea of a "small" buffet stretches the word small beyond all reasonable usage.
Well I was literally talking about a few chesnuts in the sprouts, according to my Fitbit it wasn't a good idea.
but surely from too much sunscreen as well? Because you should be able to make enough Vit D from the sun in Australia without needing it in your diet?
I wondered about that. Still, the diet was truly terrible.
Who suggested such a thing?
What do you consider to be a 'limited diet'?
I take it you've read what the australian child ate. You brought the case up in the first place. Her diet was terribly, catastrophically limited
Just saying that you have some weird ideas about a healthy diet.
Unless I missed the joke!
