I see Nanny's best chum, Ed Balls (Education Minister), has opened his trap again and let forth a stream of bullshit.
As ever Nanny and Balls are concerned about our fatness; specifically, they are concerned about the fatness of children.
Nanny, as we know, has already introduced "healthy" meals to school canteens in the hope that she can wean children off their diet of shite.
In theory this may be a noble idea. However, it is destined to fail:
1 Children throughout the ages have always had a predisposition to eat shite (eg crisps, chocolate, gobstoppers and vast quantities of chips etc).
2 The "battle" to make kids eat veg and more "adult" food can only be won on the home front, when they are pre school. Lazy parents who do not enforce eating discipline (ie eating veg), and instead allow the kids to rule the dining table, create a spoilt unhealthy child who will only eat shite who will in turn become a fat unhealthy immature adult.
Anyhoo, Balls wants more than just healthy meals at schools he also wants to ban kids form leaving school premises during lunch breaks (lest they go and buy a bag of chips) and to ban fast food outlets from opening near schools.
Here's why this is bollocks:
1 Schools are not prison camps, yet!
2 Adults also live near schools, and have the right to have free and unfettered access to goods and services; adults should not be forced to take second place to children.
