As Jamie Oliver takes on the "establishment" in LA, trying to educate the residents to eat like he does, it is reassuring to know that Nanny has not forgotten those who do not eat the "proscribed diet" who reside closer to home.
The NHS in Manchester and the local council are funding a "healthy lifestyle initiative", that seeks to educate around 30 families with "obese" on the fine art of shopping for food. Nanny will offer free supermarket trips and lessons on buying healthy foods, the cost is estimated to be around £12K in total.
Parents will be told to set weight loss goals; nothing like making children "food phobic" at such a young age is there?
Families will also be told to stop eating junk food.
I am sure that this may be well intentioned, but really will it make the slightest bit of difference?
Mankind has for millennia survived by hunting/foraging for food (without government guidance on what to forage/hunt), why now do we need to be directed?
Given that the media is awash with advice wrt weight loss, healthy food, exercise regimes etc; if those who are "obese" (whatever that means?) choose not to interest themselves in the advice already available, why will they interest themselves in this scheme?
