Los Angeles City Council Embraces "Meatless Mondays" | NBC Southern California

Los Angeles City Council Embraces "Meatless Mondays" | NBC Southern California

Whilst LA has joined the list of Cities around the world embracing Meat Free Mondays, the London Borough of Croydon, with it's high rates ofchildhood obesity, heart disease and diabetes refuses to take responsibility for it's part in it's health crisis.

Conservative / Tory run Croydon Council refused point blank the idea to declare a "Five a Day Day" suggested by leading UK London and Croydon Nutritionist Yvonne Bishop-Weston,  just one day a week.

"We really should all be focussing on eating more vegetables every day, not just one day a week. Unfortunately Croydon Council have consistently turned down the idea  where schools, colleges, nurseries, council offices and health trusts all focus on eating more fruit and vegetables at least one day a week" complains Yvonne.

"Croydon Council's reticence to set a good example and be part of the solution instead of part of the problem is totally irresponsible and just shoving their head in the sand to ignore the Croydon health stats" adds Yvonne

It's not rocket science, even if you aren't a qualified experienced nutritionist like Yvonne it's obvious from the available studies we have to eat more fibre, vitamin, mineral, essential fat and antioxidant foods and less foods that are full of ingredients we have too much of, high in saturated animal fat, sugar, salt with essential nutrients processed and refined out of the food.

Croydon Council declares war on 'fast food culture'

Vegetarian Visitor UK - Delicious Accommodation / Eating Out: Croydon Council declares war on 'fast food culture' | This is Croydon

Nutritionist, London Leading UK Nutritionist with Harley Street Clinic Yvonne Bishop-Weston says Croydon Council is right to revue moves to encourage healthier food options on the streets of Croydon, Surrey in south London

The nutritionist says it's easier to buy healther food in central London with restaurants and cafes such as

In Croydon it is much more difficult to find  healthy food

Croydon Businesses need encouragement to both offer delicious healthier options and then promote the new healthy choices. People, even those who want healthier lunch and snack options, won't psychically know that new healthier choices are now on the menu. It will take time to spread the good news and break through their previous fruitless and disappointed searches.

Otherwise Croydon businesses will simply apathetically maintain there is no demand in Croydon and we'll be back to square one, with the same old uninspired boring high fat, high carbohydrate, low fibre ubiquitously unhealthy menus.
