October 14, 2019 / By Phyllida Question:
...the diets of US families?
News out this week about the White House chef preparing organic vegetables for the Obama family, as he did for the Bush family. Do you feel more families with young children will be influenced by the publicity that the Obama's young daughters are eating veggies, and thus more families will pursue a healthier diet? Take into consideration that White House chefs will prepare the vegetables, and that the White House budget can accommodate the higher cost of organic fruits and vegetables. What effect will the broiled fish and chicken, steamed, stir-fried, or fresh salad veggies served in the White House have on the average American family? Will moms and dads make the effort to serve more fruits and veggies to their children?

The last administration did this also and it didn’t seem to have an effect on the mass popultion as far as I can see.
Americans are overweight and under exercised!!!
It’s up to the parents to get their kids to eat veggies and to make them a staple in the family diet.
It’s up to the parents to get their kids moving!
It just takes some effort!
They are a fit family already. I think the government step in make it easier to make decison at the store and should take all those products off the shelves that are potention death traps.
But of course it would be easier for everyone if we all had chefs that would cook us great tasting healthy food! I'd be first in line!
Have a great day!!

Originally Answered: How Vegetarian are Organic Vegetables?
Most organic vegetables are fertilized with rendered animal parts and manure. If you've chosen to be a vegetarian from an ethical standpoint, you might have a problem with the animal rendering. But since you aren't eating the actual animal parts, the produce is still vegetarian.
It is definitely not vegan to eat those veges though.
The effect will be minimal...
MOST folks are busy working to put ANY food on the table, and cooking I have noted is a rare thing in many working families... note the profits of McDonalds, Pizza Hut, Quiznos, and Boston Market.
Not that it wouldn't be nice IF kids and adults would eat better... Organic is nice, but just to eat REGULAR vegetables would be an improvement for most people's diets.
I am lucky that I work at home on a ranch/farm and can generate 75% of our own veggies and meat... AND that my wife and I are both good cooks.

Read the competing question, or read the article itself.
"Two president's wives, both having the White House kitchen prepare organic vegetables. Minimal publicity for one - why?"

There might be 6 or 7 families in the country that are aware of this, have the money and free time, never thought of it till now, and now they want to be like the Obamas.
