Enjoyed it thank you.
Then there's as well let's -- -- government idea gone wrong Los Angeles area schools are reworking the menu for healthy school -- have to students gave the program and Africa.
-- thousands of kids dumping their veggies.
In the -- tighten their own counsel -- wants.
So they were eating worse than before the new launches showed -- believe it Jim -- He's also kids eating healthy wants schools to keep trying until they get it right the what happened here after.
Well I think first of -- I commend LA unified for these significant attempt that they've made.
Took make over their school -- is getting rid of -- says getting rid of the friars.
Trying to introduce more exotic foods but I think they may have overshot the mark a little bit in -- -- circumstance.
And really brought in foods that.
Kids aren't just -- eat so it doesn't matter how healthy they -- if they're not gonna eat M and they're not that taste that they're used to.
They're gonna end up in the -- and it's gonna cost us more money.
We're still gonna have obese kids that are undernourished.
Well the bottom line is a lot of these kids really -- like to food that went on a mom a dad saying.
That's a -- school really stinks I mean.
On day -- reverted back to may be the launches that they like which is easier right is is not -- bomb.
So would always it's of it -- you supports the kids are very improper launch because now you're really -- Big Brother yeah.
Right now absolutely not I don't think that's the right solution I think what LA unified is doing is listening to the criticism.
And they're going back to the drying board and they're gonna try to make over.
Foods that kids like like -- said that making a with whole grain cries and low fat cheese.
So that the kids it will still.
Everything that is the health BS but healthy are and I think healthy -- Is better than them dumping all the healthy food in the trash and just bringing the -- us from hump or going to the 7-Eleven during their break in getting slur.
Eats well that's that's a very good point but I wonder whether you know kids know the difference that they -- -- -- stuff and I think to kids.
Are fairly Smart -- they did pizza taste different of them and its whole wheat or whatever.
Or they have Turkey and it's really just some sort of system Bob -- -- it has nothing to do with circuit.
Did -- -- kids are gonna say you know what can see it.
Yeah you know I do I think kids are smarter than we realize and they probably understand a lot more.
About the basic nutrition from what they're learning -- school.
Then maybe even some of their parents depending on their socioeconomic level.
But I also think that.
Foods as long as they taste good kids don't really differentiate one way or the other so.
If we can start introducing foods that are healthier if we can do for example lake up -- -- -- -- with Turkey meatballs.
And some broccoli hidden in there.
I don't think if it tasted good bit kid would go out of their way to pick the broccoli out of that salads so if we can continue to be more creative and work that it.
And I think LA unified is trying to do that but we distaff step we have to find a compromise because we really are.
Going to see a tremendous impact from the obese kids that are in schools these days if we don't do something about it.
Should that -- the school's job to do with the doctor.
That's a great question I think it's partially their job it's not completely their job but it's.
A third of the calories that our children are eating our at school so they have to take at least a third of the responsibility but you bring up a great point.
Because if these kids are not eating healthy foods at home.
You really do acquire a taste for healthy foods I mean I don't many people remaining parents out there -- I don't believe me.
Yes -- my you have to admit there are some foods that are in apartheid but of all the.
Exactly nervously held seats that you probably currently are alive.
If you're certainly you try some other stuff you get -- -- you really like.
I you really do and studies show that it takes about nine times of that exposure to the food for our -- to really embrace its I think we have to keep trying.
And the parents have to be consistent.
They can't be having fast -- -- home and expect their kids -- -- it's cool it's just not realistic real quickly what the heck are brown rice cut let's.
Up there brown rice made and it's something that semi resembles.
Aid chicken pat let maybe I don't know I'm not I'm not a great shaft but that's my gas.
All right duly noted doctor check it out.
-- -- -- -- -- -- I imagine that I would either brown rice -- lady there OK just to be honest and I may not as -- credit shot you're great gets -- to thank you very very much appreciate it.
