And with that, I am done with you, umoveme. Ihave said all I have been wanting to say to you for a very long time.
You, for some reason, see it as your duty to criticize and label others. You're hypocritical, mean, a bully, and not everyone will take it.

If it's not your damn child, look the other way. IT AIN'T YOUR BUSINESS.
You are the exact type of person I warn my child about. So shove it.

End of discussion.
Sorry... t I didn't want to stick my nose in this, but this post is complete and utter garbage. You say you don't judge, but are so effing fast to judge others. Look at this post, nothing but judgmental.

The way you post can be extremely immature. This "my opinion matters more than yours" vibe is very immature. This theme has shown up in the Rush forum, NWW, SOCN and now here. Maybe one day you'll step back and realize it's you and not EVERYONE else.

And... how arrogant is it to say "End of discussion"??
Couldn't agree more LIX.

The fact remains that there is a childhood obesity epidemic.  Lack of exercise and proper nutrition is the cause.  That is not a comment on anyone in particular but North American society in general.  Introduce your kids to wholesome foods and exercise.  It is one of the most important things you can do as a parent.

This is true. Next time you are out in the public square take mental note of the folks in good shape and the folks who aren't. The percentage of overweight-obese folks is staggering. I know when I was a youth there was always that one or two "fat" kids in your class. I would venture to guess that has changed dramatically today. I have really noticed since I have shaped up myself how out of shape most folks are. I am definitely in the minority now and will stay that way....

I've been up and down... was in great shape until we had our daughter. kind of stopped working out, but still eating pretty well. We rarely go out to eat, and never eat prepackaged anything. Since my dad had his heart surgery, it really made my brother and I take a good look and make some changes. My brother is down almost 40lbs, and I am down 10 (he has A LOT farther to go than I do) :)

:cheers: It feeling so good. Kudos to you and your brother. Discipline and the ability to achieve is easier for some than others. My stubborn, OCDness is a benefit when it comes to this kind of stuff..... :)

The childhood obesity epidemic isn't caused by juice boxes.  It's caused by X boxes.  I'm 45.  Back in the 70s, we drank a shit load of Koolaid and pop, and their wasn't an ounce of fat on us.  That is beacuse when we weren't in school we were outside playing baseball, riding our bikes, and running around like crazy gibbons.

There is nothing wrong with letting kids be kids and enjoying some of the pleasures of being a kid.  Just make sure you get them off of their asses enough to burn off that Capri Sun or a Motts juice box.  There's my 2 cents on the subject.

I think there are better drinks to give your kids than soda and other sugary (or really, high-fructose corn syrupy) drinks, but regardless, getting them outside with a frisbee instead of inside with the X-Box or dumbphone is always a key move.

Speaking of children's "juice" drinks with no nutritional value, does anyone remember these things?

Posted Image

I remember I'd always ask my mom to buy these, I was like "They're only 20 cents each!" and she was like, "You can make a whole pitcher of Kool Aid for the same price, and it's the exact same thing!" but there was something about that little flimsy plastic bottle and that tin foil lid that just made these things so cool.

Yeah, I drank lots of that stuff.  Or maybe it was a similar unholy concoction from a different company.  I seem to remember liking "green" the best.  They even had a "pina colada" flavor, which, predictably enough, was absolutely wretched.

I actually liked the Purple one's flavor the best... but there's always been an mysterious allure to me about Blue food.

Spot on!

Spending all day long doing all sorts of activities. Plus back then, PE was mandatory at school. Remember how your parents would threaten you that if you didn't go out and find some thing to do they make you pull weeds, mow the lawn ect.? :D

Yeah, totally, I was always most curious about the blue variety of whatever junk I was eating or drinking as a kid.  And even after tasting the blue beverage/"delicacy," it was never quite clear what "flavor" it was supposed to be.  Sure, it was eventually discovered to be "raspberry" in most cases, but back then It was just...  blue.  And it was left at that.

I agree to an extent but I also remember the days when real sugar was added to juice and not HFCS.
