Eating Lard Makes You Fat, survey finds



Jeepers, does it really take a Which? survey to tell readers that if they choose a mocha with full-fat milk, whipped cream and chocolate sprinkles, it might contain a few calories? Next thing you know they'll be expecting warnings on the cups explaining that the contents are hot. Oh, hang on....

I'm very partial to sweets. I'm very partial to chocolate cake. I'm very partial to hot chocolate with whipped cream. But I accept that if I were to eat them all the time, and nothing but, I would get very fat, very quickly.

The health nannies really can't accept that we can make choices and that we're not idiots and that if we make the wrong choices there are consequences (like getting fat). I'm glad your kids like sweets, Jackie. Mine do, too. But I bet yours like mine get a good ballance of fruit and veg as well as the sweeties. Your kids look to be healthy (and have nice teeth, too!). The health nannies just don't trust us to act in our own and our childrens' best interests. Grrrrrrrr!

Rant over.
