I have to turn away when I see a parent feeding their stroller-bound baby Cheese Puffs or chips or a soda. What chance does that child have, when he/she is an adult battling obesity and diabetes and metabolic syndrome? Having been weaned on extremely spicy foods, I know first hand how difficult it is to change one’s eating habits as an adult. My body craves certain foods and that’s largely a result of how I was fed by my mother the first 18 years of my life. My diet was spicy vegetables and stews, fish, fruits, rice, a little red meat. Today I still eat some of these same foods–albeit with a lot less chili peppers—as well as yogurt, whole grains, carrot juice, western salads, etc.
Cheese Puffs isn’t really food, it’s mostly chemicals and flavorings concocted by a food chemist. Sodium and sugars. Feeding this to a baby in a stroller oughta be a crime.
