Now that the food cops have spoken…

 When you think of opinion pieces or the editorial section of the newspaper do you think of it as a page for uppity journalists to rant and rave about issues that really piss them off, or piss off the white, middle-age male population they write too?

To tell you the truth, that’s exactly what I think of when I read the Op-Eds.

But an editPhillip Morris, The Plain Dealerorial written by Phillip Morris about the state of nutrition in inner cities and how we can legislate diets opened my eyes to editorials. They can be revolutionary.

Morris really drills home a point at the end of his opinion, “A healthy appetite can’t be legislated. But it can be taught.”

My advice, read his piece. It’s short, but might as well say a thousand words.

  1. Interesting. Have you ever seen “Jamie Oliver’s School Dinners”?

    • I haven’t seen any of the episodes, but I know the general idea of the program and books. School lunches are such a shocking subject that deserves much more attention. We’re not giving kids a fighting chance. A lot of companies have a hold on funding and the government. When I was in high school, my school tried to get rid of soda machines, but couldn’t because of some funding issue. Sketchy.
      Thanks of the comment! You bring up a good problem!
