While food education is very important being able to afford good , healthy food has to be affordable for people with lower incomes.
Thank you

Yes, El Lobo. This is a Global Petition, some children truly do not know how to eat properly and that includes in the USA. How many are raised on as Ben refers to as "junk food". Also Nancy brings up a good point, affordable. But if children do not even know what is good food they'll never eat it even if they have the money, and they may even ask for it so this food will be provided in what is now called food deserts....in many cities the corner store is it, few fresh anything there.

i'm not sure about the US but 'junk food' in Australia is way more expensive that eating simple healthy food, not that there's many who realize it.

AniMae is right - healthy food isn't necessarily morer expensive! Especially if teaching covers quantities as well as quality! (And bear in mind - medical costs are likely to be less when people eat healthy food!!)

I think this would be excellent!

But I can see Monsanto & Co really hating this idea, and doing whatever they can to sabotage it .... because the lids learning about healthy food & healthy eating are liable to become anti GMO, anti mass farming products!!! And potentially, more voices against the big corporations!

Junk food is relatively cheap in the US as compared to fresh veggies and other healthier choices in foods. When one has a hungry family and little income they can buy more junk food than good food. However, most people don't know how to cook anymore turning that better food into meals that they can stretch. That use to be something that Social Workers would be helping with, but now we are gone or fewer in numbers, having been "cut out" of many of the budgets.

You know society has for far too long accepted that if we cut out a few wage earners it will save in the long run. It hasn't saved anything, in fact it is causing more problems that is coming with a far greater cost with poor health, crime, lack of education, and break down of general society. We need the firefighters, we need the social workers, we need the teachers, we need the people who process claims for our Veterans, they all held an important function in society and they also paid taxes and put their earnings back into the economy.

At the same time this Country has removed it's manufacturing and sent it overseas it has also cut back on the human service programs, both areas were strong middle class jobs.....both served a population that needed a job that wasn't going to go into College, not everyone is going to become a Dr. or lawyer, and the service jobs served those who were in need of some direction, guidance, a hand to pull them out of a dark place in their life.

I think Evelyn is correct, the more educated the consumer, this case the children who will learn good nutrition and will have purchasing power at some point, might not be so inclined to want what Monsanto is pushing and others are pushing.
