Early Lessons in Healthy Eating


7 comments:

  1. Just why an educational institution would involved itself with a toxic-food retail franchise that promotes diabetes, high cholesterol, and obesity is another prominent aspect of life in Clown Town. That sound you hear is the rest of the evolved world laughing at Hudson and I'd like to hear the new Superintendent explain the school district's fascination with MacDonald's...of all things. As the French say, "It is to laugh."

    1. I agree that McDonald's is toxic, but when teachers are given a pittance for supplies, it's not unreasonable for them to seek outside sources to offset what they have to pay out of their own pockets (which was, for us last year, +/- $200).

    2. So that is what the community's children's health is worth. $200.00 That's really sad.

  3. McTeacher Night: McDonald's receives a corporate tax deduction, free publicity and a whole group of potential new customers, your children. What Hudson gets in exchange: instead of teaching children healthy eating habits that will help promote their good health throughout life, they are encouraged to eat fast food that will contribute to heart disease, diabetes, obesity, gout and other expensive diseases. Another lose-lose proposition for Hudson's school children and a win-win for a national chain that takes from the community and gives nothing back.

  4. Maybe the school district should reach out to the Hudson restaurants for a day-long tour of healthy, quality food. It can be done with a little outreach and communication. I personally would love to see some of these kids exposed to the many cuisines offered in Hudson. Call it a moveable feast, elementary style.
