Please stop making nutrition complicated
I am constantly surprised by the answers I get when I ask a child the question, "What does eating healthy mean to you." I frequently hear "not too many carbs" and "not eating trans-fats." These complex nutrition ideas are far beyond the cognitive ability of a 10 year old to understand, let alone put into healthy practice. Yet that is what I hear time after time. As a society, we've flooded ourselves with nutrition misinformation and forgotten the simple fundamentals.
