Is that for REAL?

What are your thoughts about this  quote?
I think in general it is a great rule to live by, 

“Don’t eat anything your great-great grandmother wouldn’t recognize as food. There are a great many food-like items in the supermarket your ancestors wouldn’t recognize as food (Go-Gurt? Breakfast-cereal bars? Twinkies?); stay away from these.” -Michael Pollan, author of The Omnivore’s Dilemma
So look at your food-- ask yourself, 'would Great-grandma know what this is?' if the answer is no, maybe you shouldn't eat it.  
Kid's have so many options for food these days. It's no wonder that kid's won't eat 'normal, healthy, whole foods.'  They are so tainted with their Dino shaped chicken nuggets etc.  
Does food have to entertain the kid?

  1. Oh my heck I'm with you 100%. What's worse is everywhere you eat out the ONLY choices for kids are Mac and cheese, grilled cheese, nuggets or a hotdog and mayyybe a fruit cup covered in sugar syrup . Straight white carbs and starches. I don't understand why they don't ever have steamed veggies or fresh fruit? I always have to pack food if I want Cambria to have anything with nutritional value. Ugh. Loving the blog btw.
