According to, childhood obesity has tripled in the last three decades. Minority children, such as African Americans and Hispanics, have a higher rate of obesity than white children. With these alarming statistics, the government, schools and parents are taking steps to curb the trend of childhood obesity. Teaching children healthy eating habits in elementary school is one step toward reversing this trend. Encourage children to eat balanced meals and be conscious of portion sizes. Teach children about healthy eating both at home and at school to provide a consistent message for a healthy lifestyle.Read more: Buyfutcoinsonline com Fifa 14 Coins Online Buy Fifa Coins Fifa 14...

Msg (Monosodium glutamate) is the sodium salt of glutamic acid and is commonly used to enhance flavor.
Msg is often used in prepared foods to avoid the use of high amounts of salt in order to cover bad taste. Therefore, its presence in prepared foods is not what makes them unhealthy. The biggest problems with prepared foods are high levels of fats and salt rather than msg.

Do any old people believe in global warming or polluting?

I am not a young person... i believe that weather is caused by more then one variable... be it from the Sun's energy... or from something called Smog... or pollution... or simply... changes just happen, because it's happened before... and we go thru cycles... cycles that are longer in time then your typical lifespan.
I believe people will have an agenda to exploit climate for their own cause.

Elderly people buying unhealthy food may not be a matter of choice... but in reality the result of economics.
I dont know what to tell you about the double bagging... maybe consider getting her a reusable sack for her groceries...
If she refuses, then maybe it's time to ask her directly... if she responds kindly then maybe you have a chance to turn her around...
If she is rude or less then kind, then express that you are concerned.
Hopefully she will appreciate someone that cares for her.

I need a list of acidic foods and a list of alkaline foods

Hi Samuel,

Here is a free printable food chart of acidic and alkaline foods courtesy of

Please keep in mind:
Some foods can be listed on the acidic or alkaline side depending on the source. Some of these food items are tomatoes, soy products, nuts & seeds, or fermented items such as sauerkraut.
Not all foods are what they seem either. Citrus would obviously be on the acidic side, right? Not true! Limes, oranges, and grapefruit are actually alkaline forming fruits!
Artificial sweeteners, alcohol, and highly processed foods are highly acidic forming that offer little or no nutritional value. These foods should be avoided or eaten very sparsely.
Not all acidic foods are unhealthy and often offer other nutritional benefits so make sure you don't avoid everything acidic and maintain a balanced diet.

True or false? Only antibacterial soap should be used when washing your hands

Antibacterial soap should only be used when preparing foods for cooking and more so for ready to eat foods that do not have heat treatment.

For normal tasks, normal hand washing with any soap is fine. In fact, good hand washing techniques with water over 110'F makes antibacterial soap unnecessary.

Is it true that Prepared Foods are unhealthy?

Not necessarily all prepared foods are unhealthy but many prepared and ready-to-eat foods contain a very high amount of sodium, that helps to enhance flavor and hide the unpleasant taste that some prepared foods might have. Moreover most convenience foods are high in fats, preservative and additive content rather nutritional values.
