A long time ago…in a field far, far away…potatoes are posing a threat to our children! Really? Well, our government would like us to think so anyway. Granted that our obesity levels have gone up but is this really the right step? You take away something a kid likes and 9 times out of 10 they want it even more. So, yeah “Big Brother” might win, but then, so will McDonald’s and Wendy’s and Hardee’s and Jack-in-the-Box, and KFC – do I really need to go on? You take a trip around any school, especially a middle school and especially a high school and you’ll find a fast food place not to far away just itching to serve your kid some spuds – way to go Washington! In the meantime, this article I think hits the nail on the head.
