I found nothing new in the column and three differences from the way I was raised. One, yep, I grew 11 inches and gained 70 pounds in one year in high school and ate everything not nailed down. Two, no instant foods. My mother used it as a teaching tool to teach me to cook from scratch. Third, my mother insisted if I was hungry to eat balanced meals with every kind of food on my plate Result? I learned to cook and cook well and never adopted the convenience foods and second never was a picky eater.
