globesity: fat's new frontier

Watching babies drink coca cola from the bottle is not easy viewing but if you missed Foreign Correspondent's special on global obesity and want to witness the damage processed foods coupled with powerful marketing are doing in some of the world's developing countries you can watch the episode here.

Viewing the program strengthened my commitment to eating wholefoods and my resolve to grow this blog and do anything and everything I can to spread the word about wholefoods, to inspire people to eat well, to treasure their health and to campaign to change the world one bite at a time.

Don't even get me started on the Olympic sponsorship by unmentionable fast food company and already mentioned soft drink company. Really. The gods must sit back and laugh at human stupidity.

Not my usual sunny way to finish the week I know but it had to be said. And there's more to say but I'll leave that for next week.

For now my thoughts turn to putting the finishing touches on gifts and treasures for River's birthday celebration this weekend as he turns six. I wish you all a happy weekend. I hope it is nourishing in every sense of the word. x


  1. Horrifying viewing indeed, but sadly, not very surprising. I've been to a few countries where I seen babies drinking coca cola in bottles (and even seen that once here in Australia). Education is key.

    I'm not entirely a wholefood mum, but I'm certainly inspired by your blog. Thank you.

  2. You are right Imogen Eve, education is the key. I am so thrilled you are inspired by my words here as that is my aim with this blog to inform and inspire because I believe so wholeheartedly in not only the health benefits of eating wholefoods but also the environmental and social benefits. And whether people are just beginning to eat wholefoods, wanting to learn more or are eating 100% wholefoods I want this space to be welcoming to everyone interested in a wholefoods way of life wherever they are at. I have my non-wholefoods moments too! And believe for all of us it is about progress not perfection. It is great to compare notes and learn from each other. Thanks for reading and commenting and if there is ever anything in particular you would like me to cover please let me know.


Thanks for your comments. I read every one!
