This policy just doesn’t sit right with me. It’s all counting calorie focused and this just isn’t right. Policies should be focused on improving food choice - nutrition education, cooking skills, shopping advice.
I have a rather high soapbox on this issue!
Here’s an interesting paper released just released and could have been an opportunity to get people to eat more vegetables, wholefoods etc.
Don’t get me wrong, I wasn’t endorsing the paper…they’ve gone about it the wrong way. Food choices are the major problem; and unfortunately the cheaper options are often the worst in terms of fat, sugar and salt content. Things people love, but their bodies don’t…and they are easy to come by too.
Sorry if I was coming off as abrupt, my annoyance wasn’t aimed at you, or anyone for the matter. I just hate silly guidelines, which pontificate over misinformation and lack any understanding of the real issues that need addressing.
I didn’t take offence at your post…or @JamesCollier - I can handle blunt…I often am myself. I found it an interesting read…but it makes me wonder how much money was invested in it when it could have been a much more worthwhile exercise.
