Taco Bell Takes Away Kids Meals

Taco Bell Kid's Meal
Taco Bell Kid’s Meal

Taco Bell has discontinued serving kids meals.  In the press release issued from the company, it seemed that the kids menu was not making too much financial sense.    They said that they were going to concentrate their efforts in other areas- and that would make sense.   “Pioneering this change on our menu is a bold move for our industry, and it makes sense for Taco Bell,” said [Taco Bell CEO Greg] Creed. “We’ll be able to better focus on creating new and inventive items that our customers love.”

I have no experience with the kid’s meals at Taco Bell because I have never purchase any.    If I go to Taco Bell with the family, I would usually purchase the multiple family taco deals that have approximately 10 tacos in the pack (sorry I cannot remember the exact number).

Now when I want to eat tacos I make them at home.  Making tacos at home can be something fun and fast that the family can do together-you can make them to your liking.  But when you are on the road it Taco Bell would be the easiest choice.  Now some food choices at the restaurant have to be made without including any kid’s menu items.

Winnie the Pooh Reaping Benefits of Antioxidants in Honey

honeypotWhen most of us see Winnie the Pooh eating honey we think that he is just a greedy little bear. But with the revelation of the health benefits of honey, but now the theory needs to be revaluated. Maybe that bear of “little brain” has a fantastically astute brain. All these years Pooh has been reaping the rewards of having a diet rich in antioxidants. Researchers discovered some years back that honey contains a lot of antioxidants.

According to the US National Library of Medicine:

Antioxidants are substances that may protect your cells against the effects of free radicals. Free radicals are molecules produced when your body breaks down food, or by environmental exposures like tobacco smoke and radiation. Free radicals can damage cells, and may play a role in heart disease, cancer and other diseases.

Honey is not the only place to find antioxidants. But it one of the tasty ways for a bear named Winnie the Pooh.
