vernonFL: I try to buy organic and healthy food when I can. If not, its not the end of the world.
enthralledgeishagirl: Going out on a limb to say it was the sugar that tipped it in
js34603: That's because Jif has a bunch of sugar in it.But hey here's so more amazing news...kids like soda better than water. Guess we better let them drink soda and not tell them they can't have it. Or just realize kids are morons and don't know what's good for them, that's what makes them kids.
Unobtanium: We buy organic milk, eggs, and (usually) chicken. But only to try to avoid the hormones, and kind of un-support the use of hormones and antibiotics in farming, not because it's "better."We also have tried to get away from HFCS sweetened food products where we can.But yeah, FTA: The organic-food industry is thrilled by this attitude. But let's be clear. Organic food does not necessarily mean better. It's a term that's been co-opted and manipulated into a billion-dollar industry by some of the biggest food companies in America.
perigee: Do men do any of this crap? Or are they just cowed into submission to the line by the mad harpies they foolishly married and shot seed into?
jayhawk88: A mom in Washington tells me that she was unable to participate in a number of nanny-share agreements she looked into because the other parents were so crazy about not having their children come into contact with anything non-organic. One mother she met was convinced her child's ADD became worse when he was exposed to non-organic food. A stray Goldfish or Cheerio might set up off.It's like turning your child into a time bomb that's set to go off in college.
HiFiGuy: I started to read that and was kinda interested, and then I realized that this is the under-the-radar "granola liberals suck" article that the NY Post/Murdoch is famous for and then I got all *shakes fist*-y.

Jean Claude Van Darn: Because they didn't want him having ice cream, some overly health conscious friends of mine told their son that the ice cream truck was just "the music truck that drives around and plays music in neighborhoods with kids".It is the saddest thing I have ever heard to this day. The Rwandan Genocide has nothing on this story.
Forbidden Doughnut: Not really on the "organic foods" train, but organic milk tastes WAY better than conventional milk does, IMHO./ possibly because it's relatively local (in my case), and hasn't been stored for very long...// in this case, I'm happy to pay more $$$ for a superior product

The Rwandan Genocide has nothing on this story.My kids called it the music truck on their own up until last year. I did nothing whatsoever to correct them on what kind of truck that was. Not because I don't want them to have ice cream, I just don't want to be harassed about getting some every time it comes by. Am I an awful person?
