Contact your representatives and ask them to take steps to reduce sugar content in school cafeteria food and to eliminate sugary food dispensing vending machines in schools.

 

Here's how to find your elected representatives: https://www.usa.gov/elected-officials/

And you are right: sugar is a drug. People do become addicted to sugar.

Rah! Read those labels! There are 57 labeling terms for sugar. (this Prevention article detailing the names of sugar was written in 2013, that's plenty of time to make up new ones ...) http://www.prevention.com/food/healthy-eating-tips/the-57-names-of-sugar

 

We found sugar in a salsa sold at a health food store. And not a peach or pineapple salsa either. Boo. Hiss. Smiley Sad

 

Right there with you on a whole food from-scratch diet. DH & I are in our late 50s, have no diseases, are on no prescriptions, and are physically active. We both come from families with lifestyle diseases, most notably diabetes. We live differently than our families, and we are healthier. So we know the power of eating well.

 

Huzzbah to you, @fwarren1 for sharing and caring. Smiley Happy
