Professor Grant Schofield, health adviser to the New Zealand government and proponent of a low-carb, high-fat diet, wants to see an end to the selling of chocolate as a fundraiser in schools:
Fundraising through confectionery just isn’t a good look. Families like mine end up with 60-plus chocolate bars in the house.
We don’t want to have to ask others to buy them and don’t want to return them so we end up with that many bars. They will get eaten and we don’t need that much sugar in our house. Surely we can do something more imaginative.
Sounds like an excellent idea.
