Due to the threat of future food supplies, Cubans have taken to creating plots in disused areas around Havana to grow fruit and Veg for themselves and the community. Could this be a way to at least help kids, in built up urban areas, get more involve

Dominik commented on Fresh Kiosks for disadvantaged suburb areas

I dont think it is should be mainly associated to socially disadvantaged children, however i am sure that a high percentage are effected. I see a lot of it is down to parents from all social/economic positions.

There are many parents who don't have enough time, i.e. busy with work or other commitments, some simply cannot be bothered, or simply don't get it and themselves are not educated in the importance of diet and Fresh foods.

So teaching kids about the benefits of fresh food / diet, in general should be just as important Physical Education.

Dominik commented on The Meatrix

This is great message.

Getting the balance right about meat, with kids, is really important, i.e. eating meat from reputable, sustainable, trusted sources, whilst eating less.

Here is a similar video about supermarkets vs organic food -

Dominik commented on Branding Vegetables!

I would agree more with Jane's thoughts on the idea of provenance.

I would be very concerned about changing the tastes and colour of fruit and veg. Kids should learn to enjoy and appreciate fruit and veg in its natural state.

Broccoli cooked in the right way, or with complimentary veg / meat / fish / pasta, can be amazing.
