    You are in NO position to lecture the public about what healthy meals to serve your kids. You don’t cook for your kids, the help is cooking for your kids. Hell, you can’t even make a baked potato you anorexic slut. You barely have a high school diploma and your telling us how to raise our kids when you can’t even raise your own?! You want a simple cure for your children’s obesity? Have ice cream truck that don’t ride in your neighborhood. Your kids’ music teacher asked your kids, “What’s your favorite instrument?” & they replied, “The Lunch Bell.”

      Of course you would be a bully, or a troll with an anonymous name. Lets get one thing straight, her husband is a Chef, secondly she was brought up in a different lifestyle, then you of course she’s going to have someone cook for her children at least she cares enough to have it done. Lets see how many times do you eat out, or take your children out to eat? Her point was to give ideas to others about giving good to future generations. I’m a public health student/dietcian and the child obesity is an epidemic that they will have to pay for later on, with several other underlying diseases. And finally, your topic was non educational, you sounded like a child, I really hope you have none because your not displaying proper behavior attacking her the way you did, you had no validity in your comment you will be reported for online bullying. They can track your IP address smart move. NOT.
