When we prepare our meals at home, including our on-the-go lunches and snacks, we use fruits and vegetables (organic if possible), lean proteins, and healthy grains and fats to control what we put into our bodies and influence our health. Food is our medicine after all!

Canadians are familiar with the company's television ads promoting its "vegetarian-fed" chicken and beef with "no added hormones or steroids" (although neither policy affects animal welfare). While McDonald's and Wendy's are racing ahead to appear like chicken liberators, A&W risks branding itself as the guys who keep hens locked up.

The more kids learn about food, where it comes from and how to prepare it, the more likely they are to be healthy eaters and have a healthy relationship with food. Get kids involved in cooking even if it's as simple as stirring or helping choose ingredients. Kids love to try foods they helped make!

If you google it, most restaurants take anywhere from 145 seconds-180 seconds to make your food. That's you telling the big board your order and it getting cooked. So it's 2 minutes and 30 seconds from the time you say "burger and fries please" till the time you have food in your hands.
So, if you are absolutely determined to escape the sodium trap, the best you can do is to stick with whole fruits and vegetables, lean, unprocessed meats, fresh seafood, beans and legumes, and unrefined whole grains.

This summer Mexico put in place a ban of food advertising to children. The target is junk. Restricting advertising to children is good policy as one part of efforts to have our kids eat nutritiously right from the start. However, in this increasingly interconnected world it is harder and harder for any one society to effectively constrain such promotions.
Obesity is one of the leading causes of heart disease and metabolic syndromes. It leads to a deterioration in the quality of our life and often the length, too. Some experts have gone as far as saying childhood obesity is such an epidemic that this current generation of youngsters will have a shorter life expectancy than that of their parents!

there is some evidence that consumers are turning away from at least some forms of junk food and beverages. To the extent this is so the market will respond. One piece of evidence is the falling rates of soft drink consumption. Another indication that some consumers are spurning junk food and beverages is the emergence of "virtuous fast food."
Canadians are well used to looking on in envy as our neighbours to the south get all the good stuff, and when it comes to food, it seems that happens even more often. Heck, the U.S. even got the Tim H...

Say hello to "Mr. Happy," McDonald's new ambassador of nutrition. Yes, nutrition and McDonald's are now in the same sentence! I'm scared and sad. I don't want to learn from a box. I don't want to learn from a scary, big toothed, slightly creepy object. How am I supposed to trust that? Nutrition needs to be clean, whole, nutrient dense and not in a box. I can make a fast food meal that's more nutritious and much faster than McDonald's can -- raw spinach greens, easy over eggs and a green smoothie. It would take 10 minutes flat and I wouldn't have to leave my house or put expensive, air polluting gas in the car!
If you look online, you can easily find plenty of examples showing you just how different the fast food you order at a restaurant is from the advertisements that get you ordering it in the first place...

Robots may soon be preparing and serving food at fast food restaurants. Increased pressure to raise employee wages has prompted chains to rethink their business model and replace these workers with machines. This technology will begin arriving soon but will the food still taste good and be safe to eat?

With obesity the die is usually cast early. The results of a major study in the US have established that a third of children overweight in kindergarten are obese by the eighth grade. Almost every child who was very obese stayed that way as they grew older. An individual should not be easily blamed for conditions that result from their childhood when they have little control over their well-being.
