Children will eat smaller portions from the adult menu!Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up A recent survey by Nutrition & Health Foundation and Restaurants Association of Ireland shows that almost every parent wants their child to eat what they are having. Backing the claim that many “kids menu” offerings are just not good enough. The two groups came together recently to launch ‘Kid Size Me’ Nationwide initiative.Provision of child size portions of adult meals in restaurants is an important step forward in tackling Ireland’s childhood obesity levels and is at the heart of a new joint initiative called ‘Kid Size Me’ from the Nutrition & Health Foundation (NHF) and the Restaurants Association of Ireland (RAI). The initiative aims to ensure children have access to healthier food options when dining out by making child size portions of adult meals available as an alternative to ordering from the standard children’s menu.  Participating restaurants will carry the new ‘Kids Size Me’ symbol on their menus and over the coming weeks consumers can log on to to see a list of participating venues. New research entitled ‘Eating Out With Children’, commissioned by the NHF, indicates the scale of demand for child size portions of adult meals with 98% of parents surveyed supporting the move.  80% of parents state they have dined in a restaurant or café where child size portions of adult meals were available in addition to the standard children’s menu.  However, 3 out of 5 (58%) of those surveyed only became aware of this option by requesting it from restaurant staff as the offering was not advertised.    Linkedin Previous articleIrish firms warned cybercrime is viralNext articleComedy, concerts and drama at Terryglass admin Facebook NewsKid size me for better eating outBy admin – August 4, 2011 707 WhatsAppcenter_img Advertisement Email Print Twitterlast_img read more

Gun-toting Homeowner and “Mob Victim” Shreds CNN’s Chris Cuomo

first_imgThe St. Louis attorney who, along with his wife, who confronted Back Lives Matter protesters says the only thing that kept the “mobsters” at bay was the fact that the couple brandished guns. He got into it with CNN’s Chris Cuomo armed with his intelligence and came out the victor.“I believe in my heart of hearts that the only thing that kept those mobsters, that crowd, away from us is that we were standing there with guns,” Mark McCloskey, 63, recently was quoted saying. He also said he was a victim of terrorism.“If I was in the same situation, I’d do it all again,” the lawyer said in an interview at their mansion. “The bottom line was, I was there to protect my family and my house and myself.”Mark insisted the safety mechanisms on his AR-15 and his wife’s handgun were on when they confronted the group. He declined to say if either weapon was loaded.He said one protester called him by name and that another man kept getting closer “trying to look intimidating.”“I’m not a mind reader but he gave every impression of being there for assault purposes and to be physically threatening,” Mark said. “It got to the point where I was concerned that I might actually have to shoot.”Patricia said she called 911 but that cops never showed up. Her husband said he didn’t blame police because they are “underfunded, understaffed, overwhelmed.”The couple said that while they have heard from supporters, they also have been inundated with threats.“‘We’re gonna burn your house, this is gonna be my bedroom, my living room and bathroom after you’re dead,’” Mark cited as an example.last_img read more
