Eat Chocolate

I am more than a little gemused to see that Nanny is twisting herself into all sorts of knots over the dangers of sugar (eg cupcakes vs cocaine), and her insistence that we feed kids fruit juice etc.

It would appear, and no one with half a brain should be in the least bit surprised about this, that some juice drinks contain more acid than vinegar.

Dr Kathy Harley, dean of the dental faculty at the Royal College of Surgeons, told the Sunday Telegraph that drinks such as smoothies contain a lethal combination of acid and sugar (this of course does terribly damage to the teeth).

Dr Harley said that a healthier option would be to give kids a glass of water and a handful of chocolate buttons!

She went on to say that Nanny's "five a day" advice (wrt fruit) should in fact be restricted to a "once a week treat".

Now I would like to offer some commonsense advice here, namely that if the kids were given milk and cheese after they had just consumed the fruit juice/fruit, then the acidity levels in the mouth would be neutralised. However, as we all know, Nanny has told us that milk and cheese are bad for us.
Maybe then a spoonful of salt, to counteract the sugar and kill the bacteria?
Oh, I forgot, Nanny hates salt as well!

    Chocolate is a natural anti-depressant. It encourages production of serotonin in the brain......Far healthier than prozac too!

    All Nanny needs to say is everything in moderation......There is a real irony in that, as Nanny reduces access to NHS dentistry, she bangs on about eating more fruit and drinking more fruit juicies which, in itself, causes more and more dental decay.....This proves that Nanny has no joined up thinking in all areas that she pokes her nose into.

  2. Haha, love it! Well put. Tis true, the state (err, nanny, sorry) has so many vested interests and dumb MPs mesmerised by them that they've completely ballsed up the worry-free diets which served us well for hundreds of years. Anyone who religiously follows government recommendations on what to eat and what not to is a screaming imbecile.

    The human body is not some delicate machine that constantly needs looking after. It is a truly remarkable piece of engineering that can repair itself, fight off infections, compensate and cope with almost any abuse you can give it.

    Stupidity amongst the medical profession as well as the general public has led people to accept and believe that anything that isn’t ‘good for us’ to eat or drink must be ‘bad for us’. When in reality hardly anything will do us any harm.
