From one extreme to anotherPage 2 of 2    (1, 2)
Young chap I worked with many years ago, he was thin as a rake at 19yr of age, he ate nothing but chips because he claimed all other food made him ill when he was a toddler.
He used to cycle to work each day, but then he got a car.
He's now massively obese.....

We can't apply generalisations to all cases, but we sure as hell have a responsibility to raise a generation that understands and appreciates a well balanced diet. Pandering to their every whim food wise, means we get to a point where the difference between genuinely having a problem with food and purely taking the piss because chocolate tastes nicer, becomes impossible to differentiate. Kids by their very nature will go as far as their adult influence allows them.
Kids in the 1950's didn't have all the rubbish we have now, yet they didn't go hungry and still ate a meal even though it probably did consist of offle in those post war days.

To suggest that kids now have to eat rubbish or they'll starve is pure lunacy.

Who carried out the medical examination?

Did all the children get letters?

You mentioned the letter ‘created alarm’. What caused the alarm?
(Was it the wording of the letter?)

Have you ever written for the Daily Mail?
