Don’t tell me to eat 6-11 servings of grains every day.
Don’t tell me the butter on my toast isn’t good for me.
Don’t make me put crackers on a plate with pizza just to get in enough grains in one meal.
I’m grateful I live in a democracy where the government just makes recommendations for what I eat and doesn’t completely control it – but for those who eat government-funded meals like school lunches and those from charitable organizations, I feel sorry.
While volunteering at Kids Food Basket, a local (amazing!) charity that makes sack suppers for kids who otherwise might not eat outside of their government-funded meals at school, I noticed that we were adding white flour saltine crackers to the lunch bags.
