  • Cracker: Dig This!, in reply to Danielle,

    I've not been that keen with my garden, though I have done one through that feeling of necessity. And this year, for the first time, I think I am really enjoying getting out there and planting stuff...Damien's approach, starting with some herbs, is probably the best way to get going slowly...

  • Hard News: The GST Punt,

    @Isabel

    The trouble with reducing the tax on "healthy food" is that different people can have very different dietary requirements so what is a healthy food for me may be a bad choice for my elderly father or your toddler. What percentage of the population does a food need to be a good choice for before it gets the tick? Does something have to be 'the best' or merely adequate to be exempt?

    As far as 'healthy' foods go, requirements are pretty much the same for people at all stages of life, the healthiness is more about the appropriate quantities for people at different life stages - eg older people may have slightly higher protein requirements than a middle aged person (unless you're talking about food allergies/intolerances, or a few items such as reduced fat dairy products for under 2's for example.

  • Hard News: Kids: Still alright,

    I think it is truly soul-destroying that custard squares are on the seemingly endless list of things not supposed to be consumed by pregnant women. (I seriously considered having a first post-natal meal of Bluff oysters and a custard square.)

    If you mind taking the trouble to make yourself a fresh one, a custard square is attainable, if you're desperate enough...;)
