Go and look around with full awareness in a Supermarket or any other type of business, which is selling the normal food, many people eat today. From a viewpoint of healthy nutrition you will not really be impressed. You may even feel, that this is made that way with full intention and that these companies have nothing else to do, than selling chunk food to the customers, making a real fortune. The only good thing with chunk food is, that you can get some more variety for your weekly menu planning. And it is also easy on the cooking-part, you don't have even to "think" about it. Everybody can cook and eat chunk food.
But "chunk food" developed into such a major industry that you get scared, from where you will now get your daily vitamins, minerals and proteins from. Today you have to be a trained specialist or you should come from a more health educated family, that you still understand what's going on. These chunk food companies like selling you all their products in abundance and continue to expand, so they would never tell you one word about the real value of their products. Many make it simple and call it all "Snacks", but they're expecting very secretly, that people buy it as a meal. In the past Mammy said "Don't eat that now, soon we have dinner". But that's exactly, why they call it "Snacks". You come home and you say, "No thanks, I had already 2 hotdogs in the afternoon".
Why do we find so many victims in the chunk food industry?
It is not the chunk food industry, which has full responsibility for what's going on. It is some missing education in health for families and teens, but also the ethics level of the individual applying some common sense, when shopping. One should not too often buy food only by the taste or easiness to cook it, but with the understanding of what one's body really needs. Let's say it simple: if you didn't have your apple at lunch, you may then get one after dinner and not the waffles and pancakes, because you like them so much.
If you are thinking about Supply and Demand, it is actually from the beginning the fault of the superficial and easy consumer, having since then only bought and cooked his chunk food. Because otherwise it wouldn't get produced that much.
And we could find all the real nutritious products always more in front of the shelves and also properly labelled.
One solution to overcome this problem sometimes can be accomplished by taking additional regularly multi-vitamins. In that way you can support a problematic menu planning, knowing that you are still doing fine. But it is not as good and doesn't work over a longer time, because healthy nutrition is mainly only coming from real fresh ingredients grown in nature. The best way is to get some cook books and classic food magazines and learn the basic task of real simple, but effective food preparation. And with that one will also gain financially with saving lots of money.
