A Chocolate Orange Is Not Part of Your ‘Ten A Day’! :-0

A Chocolate Orange Is Not Part of Your ‘Ten A Day’ – But That Doesn’t Mean You Shouldn’t Love What You Eat.

We’ve been reading a bit about the history of UK food policy recently (well, Claire has, she’s told me bits) and we found this article by excellent food writer Bee Wilson in this weekend’s Guardian dovetailed with some of what we’d found:

Bee Wilson also makes the sage observation that, ‘Pleasure, curiously, has seldom been part of UK food policy, least of all on fruit and vegetables.’

Other countries revel in the eating of vegetables, as we once did here and rediscovering the relishing of veg is a big key to both our individual health and our health as a nation.
