Help!  The Kitchen Table has been Stolen!  A blog by Kansas City Dietitian

I have been rushing around like a chicken with its head cut offtrying to save the world by pushing sexy veggies.  And I have been getting absolutely NO WHERE!

(♫ No where Dietitian, sitting in her No where Land,
Making all her nowhere plans
for nobody♫- surely you remember the song that the Beatles wrote for me.)

Anyway, did you notice that the kitchen tables in the American home have been stolen?  Yes, folks the main reason for a crummy diet is the disappearance of the kitchen table.

Why kitchen tables are the solution to halt  obesity and poor nutrition habits in America:

The kitchen table is where:

  • Children are introduced to new foods like SEXY VEGGIES!
  • Children watch what their parents eat and learn that beets taste good.
  • The Parents eat their veggies in front of their kids to be good role models for their kids.
  • People socialize and communicate.
  • People learn and practice good manners.
  • Families share food, love, respect and family values.

 

Things that are NOT a kitchen table:

  • The inside  of a car
  • A couch in front of a television/video game
  • A bed
  • A bleacher at some kid’s game or practice
  • A desk in front of a computer

 

For heaven’s sake America!  Wake up!  Make a decent meal and sit down at the kitchen table and eat.  And PUT DOWN THAT CELL PHONE!

 

…♫ please listen,
you don’t know what you’re missing,
Nowhere Man, the world is at your command.

Take your time, don’t hurry, ♫
Luv, Nowhere WD
