This movie was shown in Health class last year (grade 7) and again this year.

My child has a good grasp of where her food comes from. She has enough issues around food and eating. She doesn't need a guilt trip added onto this.

She couldn't eat her lunch yesterday. :(

I kept her home from period (that class) today. Are they going to show this movie every year? :roll:

People without allergies don't understand. It's easy to say 'find a local coffee shop when travelling vs mcdonalds', but which one will provide allergy, ingredient & cross contamination lists?

I know that's a bit off topic, but a person can only be hyper concerned/vigilant about so much food stuff.

Wanting to avoid certain foods (ie caged eggs vs free range) can be a priority, but imho isn't anywhere close to avoiding a life threatening reaction.

Apparently it was an attempt to get students to understand where their food comes from and that they have choices about what they eat.

Some of us have more choices than others.

My child knows perfectly well where her food comes from. She probably knows better than most of the teachers at the school.
