We Agree with Mike Huckabee

When Sarah Palin dedicated a s’more to Michelle Obama on her most recent episode of “Sarah Palin’s Alaska,” she was once again raising her disagreement with the so-called Nanny State. CNN reports that Mike Huckabee retorted today that Palin obviously didn’t understand the First Lady’s true intent. Palin has repeatedly expressed her disagreement with Obama’s healthy eating initiative. According to CNN:

“The former vice presidential nominee told conservative talk radio host Laura Ingraham last month that “the first lady cannot trust parents to make decisions for their own children, for their own families in what we should eat.”

Palin also hand-delivered cookies to a Pennsylvania school last month before delivering a speech there, saying: “Who should be deciding what I eat? Should it be government or should it be parents? It should be the parents.”‘

Yes, parents should have the ultimate control over their children’s eating habits. And yes, we love us a s’mores. But parents first have to know how to eat a healthy diet and teach it to their kids; plus, kids consume much of their daily diet away from their parents; and, everyone, including Tracey and I, need to be reminded about moderation. So, enjoy a s’mores. Have two with your kids. But don’t follow that up with hot chocolate unless you are Sarah Palin, and have time to take a long hike in the Alaskan woods.

    I was wondering if you accept guest posts? I have an article that I would like to submit that I think fits the theme of your site. I am also interested in any advertising opportunities that you may have that I can forward along to my marketing team.

    Thank you,

    I would agree that parents should decide what their kids eat. As you said, though, it’s really important for parents to understand how important nutrition is. I need to get in a better habit of giving my kids more healthy snacks throughout the day: celery with peanut butter, fruit, yogurt, etc. In talking more about our kids healthy, I wanted to pass along this Mom’s Guide to caring for kids teeth. It has great ideas on how to keep our kids teeth healthy. I hope you find it helpful too. http://www.1dental.com/moms-guide/
