Cancer Fund: Don’t Serve Cured Meats to Kids

Cancer Fund: Don’t Serve Cured Meats to Kids

 In Blog

The World Cancer Research Fund is advising parents not to include ham and other cured meats in their kids’ lunches. Exposing children to cured meats exerts a double whammy: it gets them eating foods linked to bowel cancer, and it can establish a taste preference for unhealthful foods that persists throughout life.

So if ham and bacon are given the boot, what does the group counsel serving instead? You guessed it: chicken, cheese, and fish.

It would be sheer lunacy to suggest sandwiches made with nut butters, hummus, grilled veggies, or smoked tofu. Link.
