Kids and Food

Fresh Food

The uproar in the 70s about kids not knowing that milk came from a cow, instead of from a carton at the store, is nothing compared to the ignorance kids have about food now. Most do not know what vegetables look like in their natural state – not even common ones.

This is because their food is not coming even from the produce aisle. It means that most kids are getting food served up to them from boxes and cans, put on a plate in an unrecognizable form.

Most kids have never picked fresh food from a garden, have never gathered an egg from a henhouse, nor carried a bucket of warm milk in from the barn. And it isn’t a good thing that they’ve never done these things.

They’ve missed out not only on some of the best work and family experiences of childhood, but of life.
