In a statement, the company said it was attempting "to rebuild markets following the unfounded and misguided attacks" and was "making significant progress in setting the record straight." "We continue to stand by our lean beef as 100% wholesome, safe and nutritious, and we will continue to defend Beef Products, Inc. against the mischaracterized and irresponsible misrepresentations that led us to take these actions," said spokesman Rich Jochum, urging consumers to visit the website BeefIsBeef. It says its boneless lean beef is "approximately 94% lean beef, and made with great attention to food safety and quality." [15] "We intend to continue operations at this location and expand production here as the market activity allows," Jochum said. "In the interim, we continue to stand by our lean beef as 100 percent wholesome, safe and nutritious, and we will continue to defend Beef Products Inc. against the mischaracterized and irresponsible misrepresentations that led us to take these actions." [22]

Beef Products, Inc. extracts lean meat from beef trimmings and processes it into low-fat meat products for use in grocery stores and fast-food restaurants. [6]

Sen. Bill Dotzler, D-Waterloo, whose district includes the shuttered Beef Products processing plant, said the governor’s efforts "just couldn’t keep up" with the spread of the negative publicity. [9]

In late March, the company suspended production of its lean finely textured beef, a filler made from chemically treated trimmings that is mixed with fattier beef, at the three plants. [15] In late March, BPI suspended production at the three plants for 60 days. At that time, BPI spokesman Rich Jochum had said the closure could become permanent. "This is a direct reaction to all the misinformation about our lean beef," Jochum said then. [24]

The product is, on average, 95 percent lean beef and is mixed with ground beef and in other products including low-fat hot dogs. [6] In March, public outcry erupted over the filler for ground beef, which is made from fatty trimmings that are more susceptible to contamination than other cuts of beef. The trimmings are therefore sprayed with ammonia – more often associated with cleaning products – to remove pathogens such as salmonella and E.coli. [24] The product, added to some ground beef, includes beef trimmings treated with ammonia to kill bacteria. [18] Following the public backlash, many grocery stores announced that they would either discontinue selling ground beef that included LFTB or they would label the ground beef that included the product. [22]

What are facts for children 3-5 about healthy foods?

Question by T: What are facts for children 3-5 about healthy foods?
I am doing a project in school and i have to create a lesson plan for children between the ages 3 and 5. I want to do an activity for health and nutrition about healthy fruits and vegetables but i need a few facts to tell them about it… help.

Best answer:

Answer by ▐▀▀▼▀▀▌ ɱʀ§. Ʀ○ʃϱ ▐▄▄▲▄▄▌
For kids that young you need to keep it simple. I’d do something similar to this:

~Our bodies need 3 things to live.
-food
-water
-shelter
~Food keeps us healthy
~Food give us energy to run and play
~Eating healthy foods like fruits and vegetables are very healthy
~Can anyone name any fruits?
-apples, oranges, bananas, grapes, watermelon, pears, etc.
~Can anyone name any vegetables?
-carrots, celery, lettuce, peas, green beans, etc.

Just keep it simple like that. The kids are 3-5 so they aren’t going to understand energy or why we need to eat healthy.
