CNS News is reporting that our nanny government will begin their B-24 project which is the name they chose for their nutrition guidelines project for infants and toddlers up to 24-months. I’m not sure why it has to be a massive project. It seems like something a handful of people at USDA should be able to do rather quickly.
It will be based on the “best available science.” That is the same science that on one day says red wine, chocolate, coffee, and butter are bad and the next day says they are actually good for you.
A nanny Bloomberg-style emphasis on breast-feeding will be part of the package of course.
Any of the information they come up with could be found on the Internet but they plan to spend a good deal of money on the project. The developers will be comprised of government officials from USDA and the Health and Human Services Department, the American Academy of Pediatrics, the World Health Organization, and other health groups. They will examine literature and come up with guidelines and ideas for future research. Of course tax dollars have to go into this.
Let’s cut this from the budget and open up our White House to the public. Obama is only a temporary resident and he thinks he owns the place. He also thinks he is going to tell us what our babies are going to eat and drink. We could also use this money to restore the tuition assistance to our military which ended on Friday.
I can see the future for baby food now. Baby food will be jars of mashed peas and rabbit food. Custard desserts will be banned.
Looking into my crystal ball, I see laws for food makers coming out of this and I see added costs.
Children will allegedly have better eating habits as adults if the government becomes more involved, the same government that will allow us to dope up on marijuana so they can tax it.
