I remember reading a report on this some time ago stating that more and more kids are developing fatty liver disease.
Do you have a link to that story? Anyone can take a comment out of context.

I just saw on the news that there is major concern over the amount of cholesterol children are getting from Easter Eggs.
So I guess that means chickens have high cholesterol????

Which came first, the egg or the cholesterol?????

Unlike you, I at least provided the words for a search. Was that too difficult for you?

How did you ever get the impression in the first place that the news story was making a big thing out of nothing? Talk about getting something out of context!

Easy. Ever try to get a kid to eat too many hard boiled eggs?

I apologize if I said something that made you think I value your opinion.

Relax and enjoy the ride. A long life isn't promised to any of us, so enjoy the moment.

I would say the opposite: Society is intent on putting joy in living by telling us we should eat all the processed junk-foods we like. Moderation of junk-food consumption is what we have been doing all along, to the effect that about 65% of people are overweight or obese.

Many people eat healthy diets that are moderate and not extreme and contain SOME junk food. Junk food sometimes tastes real good...and enjoying it occasionally can still be healthy.

Being healthy can be described in lots of ways and one might be...not obsessed.

Yes, enjoy the ride.

Sometimes life is too long...............just visited my in-law in the nursing home. I hope my good friend just shoots me when life has gone on too long.

With all the issues in the world today why in the world would anyone worry about children eating Easter eggs once a year. BFD

Well, it's certainly not working for the 65% who are overweight or obese. That was my point.

The complete story was never reported to us here. We only have a brief summary/opinion by the OP as to what it was about. Perhaps Easter eggs provided an excuse to talk about something that's going on every day. High protein, high fat diets are very popular today for couples trying to lose weight. And some parents may be putting their children on the same high fat, high protein diet.

I don't think it was just about eating eggs on Easter.
