Claude and I were in Sam’s Club the other day and saw a boy, about 10 years old, and his mom. The boy, sniffing and wheezing, looked longingly at the end-cap display of candies.
He asked mom to buy them. She said yes. The genuine smile of happiness on the boy’s face was huge. He felt happy.
Thinking to myself of the labeled many ingredients like refined sugar and high fructose corn syrup, that his happiness was unknowingly about ingredients that, for him, were toxic.
Let us be a model for our children.
Let us teach them through our food choices, and reading labels, to avoid poison in our foods. And that will keep us healthier for longer, for our children - and keep them healthier, too.
