So you have probably heard about Denmark’s “Fat Tax,” adding a tax on things that are high in fat content.
I must say I am mostly pleased with their decision, and would even hope it would spread to processed foods, however I would like to see it taken one step further. For every increase in a food that is unhealthy, I thing the revenue should be used to reduce the price of fruits and vegetables. It makes is less of a punishment and more of an incentive.
So, this leads me to a goal for my readers. Every time you purchase something that you know is not healthy, go and purchase two pieces of fruits or vegetables. Fill your home with fruits and vegetables and you will find yourself reaching for the processed foods less.
