Mary sat observing the grocery shopper’s pile up their grocery carts in total amazement. “Why are you so amazed?” Tom said quietly. I whispered to him, “That’s why people are so obese; they eat, too much junk food.”
Tom had a valid point, but I wasn’t interested in hearing it.
He said, “I must tell you anyway.”
After listening to him justify himself, I finally gave in to hearing him out.
“Mary,” Tom said, “If you eat junk food occasionally, it’s not bad for you. It’s best if you allow fruits and vegetables to be consumed more and junk food less.”
“Have you heard about balance?” Tom asked.
“Yes,” Mary said.
“What do you know about balance Mary?”
“Well Tom it’s like this, if you eat an adequate amount of healthy food, there’s room for a little junk food. However, Tom, when a grocery cart is filled with over 90 percent junk food, that’s a problem.”
“You’re right,” Tom replied.
Mary began to recall growing up days in South Carolina.
“In my house Tom, healthy food was mandatory. I’m happy about the example my parents sat for me. It’s easy now to choose healthy foods over junk foods, because of that.”
Tom agreed, “Yes! That’s a key to making healthy choices.”
It’s no wonder we’re experiencing so many complications today. Obesity, ADHD, and other health related diseases, are causing major concerns for our future.
“So Tom, let’s start a campaign,” said Mary.
“That’s a good idea, Mary.”
“Great Tom,” said Mary.
Mary began to think about a title for the campaign.
She said, “Let’s call the campaign, “Change.”
Tom said, “That’s a great title, because that’s what needs to happen; do things differently.”
