Plain GROSS!

Standard

Our bodies are the only thing keeping us here on earth, so lets take care of them.  Let us together educate ourselves, our peers, and our kids on what is good and what is just GROSS!  I have come a crossed many articles lately about what is being put into our children’s lunches at school.  I have no children that attend public or private school, however, when they do I WILL MAKE THEIR LUNCH!  I understand their will be times when I will not be able to do so.  However, we can take a stand and try to stop this GROSS “Pink Slime” and other non traditional items go into our schools.  I do feel though that it is up to us as parents.  What ever happened to home cooked food, I guarantee if it were home cooked, it would save the school districts thousands of dollars a year.

However, it’s not just in the schools.  The “Pink Slime” is being used in grocery stores to keep cost down when beef prices are rising.

Sign the petition to tell the USDA to STOP putting this in your mouth and the ones we love!
