Speaker A: We have a great variety of food available now, but I think we should care a lot more about where our food comes from. I think if people started to buy local and went to farmers’ markets, they would be amazed at how fresh and tasty everything is. Vegetables are the best choice when they are in season, and simple food can be easy to prepare.
Speaker B: There are still people who think that it costs more money than it really does to eat well. It worries me that people are happy to spend thousands of dollars on a car, but don’t want to spend more than 2.50 on a chicken. We all need to be aware of what we are putting in our mouths but we seem to attach far more importance to clothes than food.
Speaker С: When I was a child we used to eat healthy food without thinking about it — you could rarely see preserved or processed food in stores. Big home-cooked family meals were central to my childhood. Nowadays, while some families have kept that tradition, generally we’ve lost a connection with food, and that makes me pessimistic about our eating habits.
Speaker D: No doubt there will always be people who prefer to eat out, and there is a place for ready-made meals, but I believe we’ve started to understand the advantages of simple local produce, and the harm of all these preservatives and chemicals in processed food. We are beginning to realize that freshly prepared ingredients, cooked simply, are much better than ready-made meals.
Speaker E: Growing your own produce is a fantastic way to get better food. You grow what you want and, when you dig it up, it’s on the table an hour later. There are always things you can grow, even if you don’t have a garden or a piece of land — herbs in a pot on your kitchen windowsill will make the difference in any dish you cook because they are so fresh.
Speaker F: We are able to buy much better food then ten years ago, but what is really missing is the culture of cooking at home. We have two generations of children who didn’t stand at their parents’ shoulders and learn how to cook — and a few TV shows are not going to change that. Many children, especially in big cities, don’t know what flour is or where milk comes from.
