Her mother, on the other hand, makes things very difficult. She doesn't understand that I'm not just being uptight, that there are legitimate risks involved with feeding children food that isn't food.

There are a lot of people who see the good 'ol American junk food diet as healthy because, well, it's American -- and because "It's what we always ate!"

I agree. It's a shame. Because my grandparents ate out of their gardens, and got meat from a farm down the road.
We've gone backwards in the past 40 years with our food choices, and sacrificed quality for convenience in almost every facet of our lives.

Yeah! ppl are doing that and that's really dangerous
