    “Most people choose taste and price over nutrition.” Very true, and convenience. Particularly, when we didn’t have much money, I’d weigh those four elements every time I went food shopping, and one or more always had to come up short.

    Actually, that’s what I was thinking about when you were giving reasons why people choose fast food. We used to eat it a lot, and our reasons were that it tasted so good (and it does, if you’re used to it!), it was easy to get to (good for on-the-go meals especially), and it was relatively cheap. We’ve since cut it out of our lives, but I do understand why it’s appealing.

    I like your ideas for educating children on why we eat what we do. I don’t often remember to process my feeding decisions out loud, but it’s a good way to let them hear your thoughts on the subject!

    I agree with this, just like I think that taking toys out of Happy Meals isn’t going to make kids stop eating them! Dumb.

    I completely agree. I wish that I had had a nutrition course in school (and now wish it for my children) to help make all those numbers more meaningful. I look at labels all the time with my children – but it’s still hard for them to connect the meaning as to why eating so many cookies is bad for you!
