Apparently Annunziata Rees-Mogg has been lecturing the poor on eating more healthily.

I’m sure they’re grateful for her advice.

Ten calories.

What have you got against price reductions boss?

But Boris said lose weight?

Annunziata Rees-Mogg: "Hello, you oiks. I'm here to promote eating out."

Oh god. Mind bleach, and quickly.

She is kinda right though.

Runs away.

Highly processed chicken arses are cheaper than olive oil, tomatoes, salmon etc. People don't always buy shit food because they're feckless morons.

Yes I understand. Hence 'kinda'. I'm really not talking about those below the poverty line or just struggling financially but the bigger group of bad eaters.

As a nation of consumers we've gotten into some pretty sloppy eating habits and while I totally back drives against foods with high fat, salt, sugar content etc..a lot of us (me included) have gone along happily with eating crap foods the shops present to us. As consumers we could demand better but we don't.

I know of parents in our circle who feed their kids crap and have plenty of money. They may not enjoy cooking or know how to cook but I don't enjoy a lot of the parenting tasks. Doesn't mean you get to just not do them.

Vox-pop on PM asked if she understood food labelling. "Yes", she replies confidently. "What is fructose?". No idea. Given the multiple-choice of sugar or salt; "Salt".

There is no hope.

Dumb as rocks.

I don't know about that as a general principle. I'm sure very many parents let themselves off one or more traditional but irksome parental duties.

FrankieTeardrop - 30 Jul 2020 13:51:35 (#18 of 50)

The one people always fear is changing nappies - but it is no big deal, and actually feels like a privilege.

Cooking decent food all the time is far more time consuming

HouseOfLametta - 30 Jul 2020 14:02:31 (#19 of 50)

Waiting about while they are up the chimneys is a bore.

Agaliarept - 30 Jul 2020 14:06:56 (#20 of 50)

You're probably right.

But when it comes to food, that's kind of a biggie. It's up there with not teaching them to read or write.

(Which I know a lot of parents leave to the teachers)
