No more hydrogenated, processed fats
I grew up in the 1990’s where it was sold to us all that fat free or low fat was healthy, but most of this low fat food was found in processed, colourful packaged foods. My mum would make sure we didn’t eat high fat foods, but our consumption of foods that were high in sugar and other chemicals was through the roof. We used to come in from playing outside and guzzle cordial, and eat some devon with salad for dinner. I thoroughly believe my mum was doing her absolute best by us with regard to diet. She had a budget and was very busy with my four siblings and me as a single mum. I absolutely applaud her. Back then we didn’t have the internet, we didn’t have resources to self-educate about health. What we did have was media, and the propaganda was everywhere. Low fat this, fat free that, I even remember the advertisement for PRAISE mayonnaise, 100% fat free! The funny thing was that it was common to drink sugary drinks, they were everywhere. You only have to watch a movie from the 80’s or 90’s to see this prevalence.
