    I think there has been a breakdown in communication between families, where knowledge is being lost. I am not sure whether it is due to younger generations feeling superior to their elders, with all the new technology and pace of the workplace. However, considering my 77 year old grandmother can make her own, cheese, yoghurt, grow a massive vegetable garden and cook food in the Mediterranean style that was passed down from her Mother. I think we need to rethink how we are educating our youth, before the knowledge is lost forever,

    @Isabel,

    I agree! these kids have no idea, & it sounds like they have no role models.

    Maybe nutrition should be taught in the school??

    As a diabetic (from eating crap for most of my life) I only eat fresh food and it is a LOT more expensive than processed foods.

    School breakfast and lunch in NYC are garbage and approved by the govt.

    Remember Regan's admin made Ketcup a veggie??? Insane.

    Food stamps should be run like WIC where they TEACH poor people what to eat. Chips and processed foods are not healthy but are allowed using a food stamp card.

    there should be a law regulating HFCS just like alcoho consumption. Don't get me wrong i love drinking soda but as of yesterday's DR Sanjay Gupta newscoop, 5 cans of soda at lunch for a single consumption should have prohibited. Love the naked chef, Jamie Oliver is in the house.

    I too wish this country could come together and work for the good of all the people and not be so divided and have the hatred that I see.

  7. Christina,

    How are kids supposed to kno their vegetables when they've rprobably never seen their mom or dad prepare a meal, let alone do it on a regular basis?

    Face it, very few homes have a parent home full time and it's hard to prepare a meal every night after putting in a full eight hours at work. I know that is not politicallly correct, but I think it needs to be said.

    Thank you Anderson. It has been an interesting week on kids and food. It is very hard to feed kids healthy foods. You are the best.

    Jamie Oliver has got me interested in changing the way I eat, it starts with the parents and with him leading a movement to healthy eating I bet we will see a change of lifestyle in this country.

    I read about those boys yesterday. How horrible, even after all of these years, for their families to learn how they were killed.

    Jamie is doing a great job! I think the kids really relate to him.

    That veggie clip is cute...those kids are cute. I guess I'm missing the real point of that clip 🙂

    One question that occured to me is how do insurers manage costs for their plans for federal employees. Clearly they're doing it and those plans don't allow exclusions for pre-existing conditions, this shows how workable this reform is, a reform agreed on by Republicans and Democrats as essential and doable.

    @Nancy in Oregon Good pt about this plan being imperfect but needed

    amie Oliver is becoming a real hero to me!

    again, education is the key. i am delighted to see him actively educating children! i am stunned that t he children did not recognize basic vegatables.

    God bless mr. oliver for what he is doing for us and our children.

    Thank you Anderson for having him on your show!!

    @ Steve
    So true. I think they've just lost all decorum. Calling the President a liar; another representative a baby killer. These are supposed to be educated people. Scary.

    Many of those Obese children also run a great risk to later develop Adult Diabetes as well as heart disease.

    Grateful to the Dems and the prez for passing this health care bill into law. The Repubs have been steaming mad that they are no longer in charge and are just using this healthcare bill as a vehicle to vent their hatred of no longer running the show. Sour, bitter grapes.

    Sometimes I just think the problem is that kids do not get exposed to a large variety of foods. It is up to the parents and sometimes the schools to educate them.

    I bet this guy will create a movement in healthy eating hes starting right with kids.

    I can't understand parents who don't feed their children appropriately. I truly believe you should not have children unless you can raise them healthy (among other things).

    It's usually not a good sign for the Pope to have been a member of the Hitler Youth.

    @Nancy in Oregon, "I don't think intelligence trumps whipped up emotion, Gloria. Bright people still do horrible and cruel things."

    I totally agree with you. Intelligence has nothing to do with decency or right and wrong.

    It looks like Pope Ratz has lost all creditability and should resign and step-down. I can't imagine a worse example for a religious organization remaining as the leading figure of that organization.

    This health care bill is the first step. I'm glad the dems and Obama have the ability to enact decent legislation unlike the republicans who do nothing but obstruct, obstruct, obstruct.

    Obama has not polarized this country , Ignorance and hatred have polarized this country. Now, just as in the past, when change has come to America.

    I agree Rickey, health care is just the excuse for a lot of hateful people to act out. If it weren't that, it'd be something else. Those people latch onto anything that makes lashing out look legitimate. That's why they are so dangerous and should not be handed the 'excuse'.

    President Obama had a chance to show some leadership by asking Republicans to join him in a joint statement condemning violence. Instead he has his political arm using this for fundraising.
