Yesterday while i was passing by Burger king at KLCC, i saw a couple with 3 kids having a tray full of fries. Believe it or not, even baby are feed with this oily unhealthy fries!. Why are we educating our younger generation to lead this kind of lifestyle? Aren’t we suppose to teach children good eating habits considering nowadays more and more kids are becoming obese.
What type of food are served in primary and secondary school in Malaysia?
Oily, fried food with high content of salt and sugar with MSG.  I remembered during my school days, laksa, tomyam, fried karipap and many unhealthy food was served, school kids have no choice but to eat these food!. Not all parents are willing to spare some time to prepare healthy food for their kids because both parents are working and they themselves also have laksa, wantan mee, yee mee for lunch.
