We Are a FAT Nation & Our Kids Will Be Fatter!

Yep, I said it and I'll say it again: FAT, FAT, FAT! 

Who's fault is it? 

Our own.

After reading Salt Sugar Fat: How the Food Giants Hooked Us book by Michael Moss.

We all need to stop pointing fingers and take some responsibility. I applaud Mika Brzezinski for doing just that in her book Obsessed: America's Food Addiction--and My Own 

We can choose not to eat these products and opt for REAL FOOD. 

We can stop pumping sugar into our kids to make them happy because we're lazy.

I think it is about time we had advertising campaigns like the one started today by NYC Department of Health:
