Manitoba's NDP are proposing to spend $30million annually providing in-school breakfasts to students.

This is a BAD IDEA.

Don't get me wrong - kids need breakfast.

But they need to eat breakfast IN THEIR HOME even more.

In typical NDP fashion, Wab and his crew are more interested in virtue signalling than actual virtue.

If a child is coming to school hungry, that needs to change. But the BEST solution is to address the root issues in the home. We need to understand why the children are not getting breakfast at home and take steps to ensure that they do. A universal school breakfast program doesn't do that.

It's even worse when you consider the message the NDP are sending to families who are already doing what they believe is important by providing breakfast for their children, especially if they struggle to do so. The NDP is effectively telling those parents not to bother.

The fact is that having breakfast together as a family is hugely beneficial to children (and parents too, for that matter). Having breakfast together has been shown to improve diet quality and lower the risk for obesity. It also helps teach kids how to live independently and make their own meals. In fact, having teenagers and adolescents eating with their family is associated with:
- healthier eating into adulthood
- healthier body weight
- lower risk of disordered eating
- less use of cigarettes, drugs, and alcohol
- fewer behavior problems and decreased early sexual activity
- better self-esteem and less depression
- better grades and higher scores on achievement tests at school

Why would the NDP oppose all of that?

Instead of trying to help families, the NDP want to take the responsibility of providing breakfast away from parents - along with all the benefits of doing so.

It's all the wrong message. That's why promoting a universal in-school breakfast program is a BAD IDEA.
