In todays newspaper, I could see a caption. The child asks his mother " Mother, is the mango in the village is as tasty as the mango juice I drink". Now a number of children all over the world are after fast foods or backery foods or ready made foods. Sadly the parents are aso encouraging their children to eat artificial foods. What do you say about this ?

Now a days every father and mother fed their child with all kinds of junk foods and artificial nutrients that the child lost its taste for natural things and if one gives him a mango instead of mango he will go after mango juice which packed and added preservatives and emulsifiers to add taste so the child has in fact become a future market for that business person or that product,whom to blame the father and mother is also addicted to these junk foods.how can the y change the habit of that child without changing themselves.

As a teacher of 5 to 7 year old children I do activities with food after asking parents if they agree to this. I am always suprised that few of them have tasted more the unusual fruit. Some only seem to know orange, banana and apple. Packed lunches can vary. Many are quite unhealthy. Even the school dinners cause me concern. The drinks have lots of E numbers in them. They can harm some children making them almost of control temper wise. Parents should bring up their children to eat healthy foods like fruit, vegetables, nuts and seeds. Fast food can be very bad for people.

Yes. Teachers have a good role to act in this field other than parents and you are doing it. Thank you for the response
