Hi, just found this, sounds like a wind up ( or a test to guage reaction), wouldn't put it past them though...

An Independent Review Of Home Cooking was commissioned by the government

after concerns were expressed that home cooking could be used as a cover

for child neglect or even abuse. The NSPCC has long held concerns about

children who are eating at home instead of the free Government Feeding

Stations located in every local community. A spokesman said, 'We believe

that children who are fed at home are at increased risk of malnutrition

and obesity. We must protect them from this potential abuse by ensuring

that home cooking is properly monitored and controlled. If this helps

just one child to avoid obesity, for example, we think the increased

monitoring will be worth it. Genuine home-feeders should not be alarmed.'

 

Many home-feeders themselves have apparently been calling for compulsory

registration and regular monitoring. Registration is the norm in many

countries including the USA, although in Germany, home-cooking has been

against the law since the 1930's.

 

Local Authorities are totally opposed to home cooking because, 'Parents

simply do not have the necessary qualifications to be able to provide

all the nutrients a growing child needs. It is absurd to think that a

home kitchen could provide a child's optimum nutrition. Some parents

have Food Technology GCSE's but this is totally inadequate when compared

to the nutritional expertise of our chefs at the Government Feeding

Stations.'

 

Under new proposals set out in the Review, parents will have to register

as home-feeders and meet with Local Authority representatives to explain

their nutritional plan for the following year. If it is not up to basic

minimum standards then registration will be denied. Home-feeders' homes

will also be inspected regularly. LA's will have the right

(surprisingly, not present under current law) to inspect home 'kitchens'

and examine the contents of their cupboards and refrigerators. LA

inspectors will also have the right to question the child alone about

their eating practices, if they suspect low quality home cooking.

 

LA's already have a duty to ensure that children are healthy, but up to

now they have had no way of satisfying themselves that home feeders are

not abusing their children. 'If you have nothing to hide, then you have

nothing to fear from these new regulations,' says a DCSF spokesman. The

new Bill on Safeguarding Children will be introduced in the autumn.

You do realise that the few minutes you spent actually considering this might be real have gone, don't you? You can never get that time back.

I think that it might be related to the recent announcement about home education.

 

If you substitute 'education' for 'cooking', etc then it pretty well sums up the press release

I wonder to which industrial trading empire he was referring. I also wonder whether the whole of education is to be directed to maintaining industrial trading empires.

Good old Fred was a man out of his own time!

 

I am quite certain that the education system in this country was set up purely in order to maintain the British establishment's place in the world at the time.

 

 

(Certainly wasnt set up just for the benefit of the peasantry!)
