I do agree with you on the part on taxing foods in your statement. And I do see your point on the cost difference at times between such things as "fast food" and certain other foods. But as a vegetarian with two children myself, I also feel that you can eat right on the "cheap" for the same price as the garbage the serve at McDonlads ect... People just need to do the homework and put the effort into coming up with those healthier choices themselves. But we live in such a I WANT IT NOW" society that people have become lazy in most aspects of their lives. We all need to take a step back and re evaluate how we all live.

The only time we drink pop/soda/sugar drinks in our family is sometimes when we are our for a meal. but that is not very often. The #1 drink in our house is good ole water and our two kids Hailey 10 and Luke 7, are more a custom to asking for water than anything else. And of course like all kids they learn from the example you as a parent set for you and your family. Look there are some of us out there that will abuse things like pop ect...but why do we think that a higher tax on this or anything else will correct the problem? We all need to be our own compass in life and stop trying to control everyone else.
