    Food dudes, LOL. It only cost us half a million dollars to show that children can and will eat fruits and vegetables in a controlled prepaid cost environment but the real challenge is to find homes and family's that buy and prepare fruits and vegetables.

    So did the half million dollars determine why kids and family's don't get the fruits and vegetables? Probably not and for many reasons. The cost, how to prepare them, and the odor, all of which determines consumption. Vegetables is one food group that should not be cooked without salt because salt is actually a sweetener for vegetables and the amount used is negligible in weight control.

    When it comes to the food of the US, it's all irrelevant and our nutritional requirements and foods have been forever adulterated to the point that any and all nutritional information genetic and DNA make up of food prior to 1985 is no longer useable.
