Healthy Choices Include Cactus
In Mexico they seem to be having the same weight issues as the US. They’re removing fried snacks and soft drinks, just like the US.
But just to be a little bit different, they’re substituting cactus snacks. The New York Times has the story.
(In) Mexico City… one day recently, there was a hot meal of rice and tortillas, prickly pear leaves with eggs and onions, and squash with soft white cheese.
That sounds delicious. Of course, I’d still rather have a hotdog and chips if I were 10. That’s a lot of kids culture (i.e. advertising dollars) to overcome.
