I guess the real question for parents, are their kids eating conventional produce? Half a cup of fruit and veggies that are laden with pesticides don’t do a child any good. Even worse, they can be detrimental to their development entirely. Apathy towards these facts is our worst enemy and theirs. Most parents choose the convenience over the proactive habits of looking out for what their kids eat. Generally. Many have no clue about genetically modified organisms or the state of our food industry and unregulated terms like “Natural”. That means absolutely nothing. It’s a marketing scam on the public.
Awareness and a steady stream of information from the right sources is all we can hope for with the general public. Butter, flour, sugar and salt for breakfast followed by a super spike of fruit juice from a box or a soda is not health. We just have to keep helping our friends become more aware. Food and pharmaceutical industries have every reason to keep fooling the public. The mighty dollar. Use your dollars wisely at the cash register. That’s where the real power is as a citizen. Keep up the good work LCPS. 🙂
