Government's Campaign to Control What You Eat

From school feeding programs to food stamps to government-provided baby formula to feeding assistance for the elderly, the government is here to help you with your food needs from the cradle to the grave. But all this government assistance comes with a catch. Not only are you no longer in charge of the food you’re eating - but participating in these programs increases the risk of obesity, encourages bad eating habits, and limits food choices. Taxpayers should also be concerned about these costly efforts, which are no longer helping the truly poor but a growing portion of middle class Americans.

The best way to improve your health, and that of your family, is to declare freedom from these government food programs and to take control of the food you eat.
