    But then you waste food.  I don't know about you but it's been engrained in me not to do that.

    I still remember the nuns yelling at me when I went to clear my tray "there are children straving in Africa".  Even smart aleky responses like "so are you going to send it to them if I don't eat it" didn't stop the refrain.  

    I've only recently learned to stop eating when I'm not hungry.  A lifetime of being told to clear my plate (plates I never made) is hard to break.  

    In general, this country just does not have a healthy attitude about food.

    I am the Typo Queen. Apologies in advance.

      My Mom was the same way - same school - she gets mad that I don't do the same to my kid - but I'm really relaxed about food - when my kid is hungry he eats (which isn't too often) but my friends still hit their kids with the starving people bit.
