Regulating eating habits of School children
Government is planning to regulate school tuckshops in order to curb the increasing number of obese children. OK government really loves regulating but, I think they are right this time.

My younger sister, doesnt get pocket money everyday, but the minute she gets some, its spend on sweets, fizzy drinks etc. Perhaps this will encourage healthy eating. We pack nice healthy food for her lunch box, but she doesnt touch it.

What do you guys think???

I agree with Joanne E ; tastes and preferences are set early on, before school ; so program your kids to appreciate good food even before they go to school
