Lazy Parents, Fat Kids, Stupid Headline

…a new study released by the National Cancer Institute and reported on Civil Eats found that nearly 40 percent of calories consumed by children ages 2 to 18 were empty calories, the unhealthiest kind of calories, derived from junk food.

This includes pizza and whole milk, which are dubious too me, but I guess kids don’t like the kind of veggie-intense pizza that’s more a balanced bruschetta that I prefer.  Skim milk would probably be better too, but really, including that must terribly skew the data because a whole lot of kids drink whole milk and don’t eat candy.  In fact, this makes me almost want to just close this window and not post this, but I’m too far entrenched in this now.
