As usual, liberals are going bonkers over GOP efforts to prevent further government control and intrusion into what we choose to feed our kids. The latest is a moronic Left Action petition that ridicules the fact that the tomato paste on pizza may be counted toward a kid’s daily fruit and vegetable requirements.
Of course, the petition is not truthful in that it claims, “House Republicans are now defending the assertion that pizza is in fact, a vegetable.” That’s not exactly true. House Republicans are promoting the continuation of current policy which allows tomato paste on pizza to be counted as a vegetable.
Even so, I am not sure what the moonbats are ranting about because tomato paste is a great example of a very healthy, low caloric, nutritionally dense food. Even when it is served on pizza! Liberals, once again, in their haste and hysteria end up looking quite foolish.
Here’s the nutritional value of 1 tablespoon of tomato paste. That’s ONE tablespoon!
