Aside from the obvious concerns, should schools take a more cautious approach and begin to drive a more aggressive stance on sugar or wait for information from, say, the Surgeon General (who recommends limiting sugar) or the Centers for Disease Control (their latest report says more sugar is consumed at home than away, and more comes from foods than beverages).
I’m concerned about political influence on a topic that will clearly impact the well-being of the sugar industry as well as the food industry, in general. I’m even more concerned about the well-being of our students.
I’d welcome other perspectives. I rather like the tax ideas in the 2nd video (not because I like raising taxes). My inner economist says using tax incentives (with revenues used for education/remediation) is a reasonable way to approach the long-term behavioral change.
