passover and easter the "food revolution"

Happy Passover and Easter to all my friends.

I have always associated holidays with food, I know the matzo ball holiday is Passover and the blintzes holiday is Hanukkah. I am also well aware that marshmallow peeps means Easter.

Why are holidays always associated with tons of food? I watched the television show with Jamie Oliver “Food Revolution’ and all I can say is it is about time. When he showed that pizza was being served to little kids in school as breakfast, I was truly appalled. This country has to wake up and realize we cannot get caught up in the red tape of life anymore. People's excuses for doing bad things, is that it has been done that way for years. On the show, Jamie showed kids vegetables and asked them to name them and they could not, however, they could name French fries and chicken nuggets…how sad.

We are raising our children to die young from major illnesses. I am so happy that www.OurResolution.com is getting very involved with children diabetes and other problems associated with childhood obesity, I so look forward to getting more and more involved with kids and going to camp this summer will help me to learn a lot. We need to all remember why we are celebrating the holiday, more then what we are eating. Hope you are well With love Stacey

In Durham, NC the school system was giving children with diabetes candy bars for afternoon snacks!!
With all the millions of dollars spent on lunch programs why some government agency can not set up a national, healthy affordable menu for schools is beyond me.

YOU ARE SO RIGHT. KIDS ARE TAKEN TO MAC DONALD'S AND BURGER KING AND FAST FOROD MEXICAN PLACES ETC. MOSTLY BECAUSE THEIR CAREGIVERS ARE TRYING TO SAVE MONEY IN THIS TOUGH ECONOMY. THE PARENTS HAVE TO BE TAUGHT WHAT TO DO TO MAKE WISER CHOICES SO THAT THEY CAN PASS IT ON TO THEIR KIDS.
