Government schools peddling wokeness

A Los Angeles parent union called out the L.A. Unified School District for allegedly posting a video on social media that argued junk food is not "bad" and to "eat without guilt."

The video was created as part of a series called "Smarter in Seconds" and featured nutritionist Kera Nyemb-Diop and activists Blair Imani and Maya Finoh. 

It started with a skit from Imani discussing how someone's food choices should not be judged based on society's "false standard of health." 

Nutritionist Kera Nyemb-Diop stated in the video, "Diet culture, fatphobia, and systems of oppression have created false hierarchies of food, and it shows up everywhere."

Imani provided the example of exercising to "earn" food or consuming vegetables as a "punishment" to "earn" dessert. She argued that this mindset creates "harmful thought patterns."

In the social media video, Maya Finoh stated, "The only foods that are bad for you are foods that contain allergens, poisons, and contaminants, or foods that are spoiled or otherwise inedible."

"We are all incorrectly taught from a young age that our size, and therefore the food we eat, are markers of our self-worth," continued Finoh.
