It all counts, certainly being active also limits opportunities for bad eating. Is it just one symptom of a broader concern.
Our recollections of the 50’s and 60’s were of a very active outdoor environment as children and teenagers.
Many of us had no TV and only imagination with a long list of now politically questionable past times imitating role models like John Wayne or Vic Morrow or Barbie or …?
Soft drinks and even juices were rare treats, and expensive choices as were chips (crisps) or potato straws. Sugar was put into tea, on breakfast or in cakes made at home.
Today is very different on both fronts, in particular where both parents and children are held captive to a modern consumer agenda. Things started to change in the 70’s. Milk bottles got larger, Golden Circle and Berri juices started to leap off the shelves in ever larger tins or cardboard or later plastic. Soft drink exploded into a full isle at the modern marvel of the super market. Chips appeared in large cardboard boxes, party sized for one or more! 🥳
And the miracle of fast food was every where including the KFC bucket, with a secret recipe that kept every last ounce of fat and oil and salt in that yummy coating.
Somewhere in the Choice Staff library there should be a book or two already written on how this all came to pass?
