A Los Angles school district is reportedly teaching children that all food is nutritionally equivalent and that they should eat “without guilt” regardless of health standards.
News of this emerged Monday courtesy the LA Parent Union, reportedly the largest parent advocacy group in the Los Angeles United School District.
The group shared a video to Twitter allegedly from the school district’s “Human Relations, Diversity & Equity” department showing three black women lecturing children about food, but teaching them all the wrong things.
Watch the stunning video below:
.@LASchools shared this “Food Neutrality” video on @lausdHRDE Insta. They tell our kids that we’ve lied to them & no one food is better for them than another food (oppressive food hierarchy). @lausdHRDE is actively working to undermine parents & hurt kids. @LAUSDSup do u know? pic.twitter.com/eWVy0jyP9Y

The video begins with two women arguing over a plate of doughnuts.
Woman 1: “I got us doughnuts.”
Woman 2: “Those are so bad for you.”
Woman 1: “Oh no, are they moldy? I mean, are they poisoned? Are you allergic?”
Woman 2: “No, I’m just sayin’.”
Woman 1: “Hmm. You’re judging my food choices based on a false standard of health again, aren’t you?”
Woman 2: “Guilty.”
The video then switches to a series of narrators, one of them a morbidly obese woman, who begins the official lecture.
“Diet culture, fatphobia, and systems of oppression have created false hierarchies of food, and it shows up everywhere. For instance, harmful thought patterns like earning food through exercising or that dessert is the reward for eating vegetables. Remember that you do not need to earn food. We’re all incorrectly taught from a young age that our size and therefore the foods that we eat are markers of our self-worth,” they say.
“Moralizing food can lead to harmful relationships with food and assorted eating. Instead of focusing on good and bad choices, try approaching food with neutrality in mind. The only foods that are bad for you are foods that contain allergens, poisons, and containments. Or food that is spoiled or is otherwise inedible. Eat without guilt regardless of what society says.”
The video has provoked strong backlash because what they’re teaching children is mostly wrong:
Hi, can you explain this then?
My son isn’t allergic to any of this food, but it prevents him from functioning in a classroom setting.
Also – you ever see Parks and Rex where sweetums is telling the town that corn syrup is fine and they all have obesity and diabetes? pic.twitter.com/tf10meWePK

Terrible. The truth is lots of foods my HS kids eat is garbage. Takis, Frappuccinos, donuts and juice in the am. I’m guilty of making bad choices too sometimes, yeah I said it. But get real, false standards of health? LAUSD, we can’t set up kids up for a life of obesity!

Sugar, salt, and fat are all poison at high enough doses. Highly processed food full of chemicals, stabilizers, and artificial colors/sweetners/flavors are also poisons in high enough doses. So yeah, sorry, there def are “bad” foods…

Imagine kids being given free rein on how to eat. What would they choose? Most likely ice cream, cookies, and chips. That’s because they don’t know any better. The problem is these women are encouraging their ignorance instead of teaching them the merits of eating healthy. And indeed, there are many merits to eating correctly.
“[S]witching to a healthy diet can have a profound effect on your child’s health, helping them to maintain a healthy weight, stabilize their moods, sharpen their minds, and avoid a variety of health problems,” according to HelpGuide, a non-profit.
“A healthy diet can also have a profound effect on your child’s sense of mental and emotional wellbeing, helping to prevent conditions such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, and ADHD.”
Why then do so many kids not eat healthy? The reasons cited by HelpGuide are extremely illuminating: “Peer pressure and TV commercials for junk food can make getting your children to eat well an uphill struggle.”
This is a highly relevant observation because it turns out that the lead narrator in the video, Kéra Nyemb-Diop, works for Mondelez International, a food company that produces a whole host of junk food, including cookies, chocolates, gum, etc.
We joked they must work for @MDLZ, the nutritionist actually does! So first libs love Pfizer, now Mondelez? I don’t recognize Dems anymore. So glad i left last year.

.@LAUSDSup your Human Relations Diversity and Equity team needs oversight. They shared a video of a Mondelez rep, selling high fructose corn syrup to our kids. This is long overdue. This department is completely unsupervised. #asklausdsup pic.twitter.com/mbEeeaeB0t

Based on this finding, critics therefore believe the video is nothing but a commercial designed to peer-pressure children into eating more junk food.
And as if that isn’t bad enough, it’s a commercial that’s being directly spoon-fed to children by a California school district …
