Toddlers who dislike spicy food 'racist'

By Rosa Prince, Political Correspondent

Toddlers who turn their noses up at spicy food from overseas could be branded racists by a Government-sponsored agency.

The National Children's Bureau, which receives 12 million a year, mainly from Government funded organisations, has issued guidance to play leaders and nursery teachers advising them to be alert for racist incidents among youngsters in their care.

This could include a child of as young as three who says "yuk" in response to being served unfamiliar foreign food.

The guidance by the NCB is designed to draw attention to potentially-racist attitudes in youngsters from a young age.

It alerts playgroup leaders that even babies can not be ignored in the drive to root out prejudice as they can "recognise different people in their lives".

These are the End Days.

That would be approximately one out of every one toddler, right? :rolleyes:

Honestly, what happened to England? Why are they constantly doing these outrageously stupid things?

It can't be all of England that is doing this kind of thing.

I love spicy food as an adult, but it took a few decades of smoking to numb my taste buds to the point where I can eat Thai or Indian food.

There is just so much wrong this. All children go through picky phases or phases of eating just a few familiar foods. Will they rehab the Asian kid who turns up his nose at common British dishes? Food is a personal issue. Disliking spicy foods or unfamiliar foods isn't some kind of moral failing, it's a preference. I could go the rest of my life without curry and still have a high quality existence. The same is true of any food or any preparation method.

The idea of Food Police is appalling.

I'd say this has to be a joke but its already here in the States. You can't say super-size at mickey D's no more trans-fats. It's beginning to remind me of Escape from L.A. no smoking, no drinking no sex before marriage. Can't wait til I get thrown in jail for farting in public. Emitting green house gases without a carbon offset.

Steak and kidney pie is just such an appetizing concept-I think plenty of kids would be sickened by the idea. Or pickled eels, or whatever other traditional "british" foods one can name, with a few exceptions like scones, cheesecake, and fish and chips.

Well I can understand if the kids get upset being given a bottle full
of camel milk or some fried camel nuggets for the older tikes. :D

I can't believe this is in the Telegraph. (It sounds like an Onion piece). This is even more frightening:


Nurseries are encouraged to report as many incidents as possible to their local council. The guide added: "Some people think that if a large number of racist incidents are reported, this will reflect badly on the institution. In fact, the opposite is the case."

Does this not sound like George Orwell? The guy was in government and seems to have been privy to actual future planning.

What the bloody hell have those zany Brits gotten themselves into? I think the population of Britain must be getting tired of this sort of nonsense by now. Our politicians are dumb, but the guys in parliament who thought up this National Children's Bureau and gave them the authority to hand down guidance are just flat out retarded. I don't mean retarded in the colloquial sense. I mean I.Q. lower than 70 retarded, as in too incompetent to stand trial retarded. Seriously British politics these days make even Kucinich look like a rational intellectual.

No, you're already a racist for serving in the military.

You only joined up to help George Bush personally kill brown people, right?

There is a certain type of mindset that puts a high degree of value on food preferences. It's a moral purity test of sorts. People who will only eat organic produce or who will never eat a white bread sandwich (unless it's a white "artisan" bread) are in this group. It's basically a litmus test for class or cultural issues.

It's quite a bit more important for a child to try new skills and practice them than it is for a child to try new foods and eat them all the time. Acquiring a taste for new foods is significantly less difficult than learning the relationship between fractions and whole numbers. Schools should stick to the few things they can do well.

I think I remember my enlistment contract saying verbatim that I signed up to be George Bush's personal assasin. Jus sayin:cool:
