Chess, obesity, murder and potpourri
I had a good laugh reading the following report on skynews about the LGA (Local Government Association) wanting restaurants in Britain to do more to fight obesity. What is this?? If clients want to pig out, then that is their choice, and right. If clients want vegetarian, they go to a vegetarian restaurant; if they want chinese, they go to a chinese restaurant, etc. Better still, if people don’t want to go to restaurants, that is again their choice.
The restaurant business is there to serve the clients. And restaurants earn more money the more the clients eat and drink. Isn’t this the way things are supposed to work? But here the LGA tries to make a contrarian argument that would just hurt the restaurant business in the pocketbook. Ridiculous! There are things that you should learn at home or at school…and if you don’t, too bad.
Restaurants are accused of not doing enough to “turn the tide” on obesity and tooth decay by only offering tap water on request….
“We want restaurant owners to play their part in tackling childhood obesity by offering families tap water. While most restaurants will happily provide a glass of tap water on request, we’re saying it shouldn’t be something you have to ask for.Some people may be too embarrassed or find it awkward to ask for tap water. Others may simply forget it’s an option.Water brings important health benefits and keeps people hydrated.
For children it’s an alternative to a sugary drink, while for adults it might dissuade them from ordering another alcoholic drink.
