Researchers are finding that Washington bureaucrats can get children to choose healthy foods, but getting students to eat them is another task altogether.
We have been thinking that if young children choose healthy food, they will eat it, Susan M. Gross, PhD, MPH, a research associate in the Department of Population, Family and Reproductive Health at the Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg of Public Health
But our research shows that is not necessarily so. eagnews
Theres a message in there somewhere. Something like you can lead a horse to water butt if you fill the trough with vinegar instead of fresh spring water they wont drink it.
Put another way, you can guilt an awful lot of people into making the correct choice
You didnt earn that on your own. Somebody else did that for you:
butt once they discover what it tastes like, they may still refuse to swallow it.
So let me make this perfectly clear: weve shown you the correct choices so we are relying on you to choose the correct response. Specifically, appropriate restraint and acceptance as the organized Ferguson riots commence, the amnesty by pen order goes down, and moral equivalency is declared between Hamas and the Jewish state. Since you know the correct response, just shut up and eat your peas.
Additionally, will you just stop bugging Barry about Jon Gruber and the Great American Swindle? He just wants to eat his waffle.
So if you have any further complaints about the peas or the pea eating monster,
please take it up with somebody who gives a damn:
H/T to one of MOTUS own Teahadists ykwya!
And one last thought from our favorite philosopher:
Moral: refuse to eat anything if you have to taste it to find out whats in it.

Do none of these people have kids? Anyone who's ever raised children could have told you this would be the outcome in five seconds.
Back in the Dark Ages, during the Spanish Inquisition, (¿Puedo pedir prestado su lápiz, el lápiz azul?) I noticed that my fellow students always threw away their vegetables. Of course, they were cooked into mush and tasteless. But I often wondered why they tried to get us to eat stuff that obviously nobody wanted. They even examined the trash and noted that nobody ate broccoli that had been steamed to death. But they persisted. This was in the 1960’s and the schools were beginning to augment their income with vending machines. Most children noshed on chips and cookies and stopped eating the carefully balanced meals altogether.
Libs! Is there ANYTHING they won't believe if someone from the Inner Party says so? Why do I believe that Gruber was referring to his fellow Democrats? Personally, I feel there are only two types of Leftists, Stupid and Evil.
No Justin, no peas! No Justin, no peas!
The dork needs a knife to eat a waffle?
He’s a fag, whaddya want?
You can lead a horticulture, but you can't make her think.
I also know parents who still make lunches for their kids today. Today our lives are so harried. I am so glad I grew up when I did.
