The standard American diet is SAD. I heard this mentioned at a talk a few years ago when woman spoke on healthy eating. I did not know at that time it was so 'talked about'. I am not going to include the links I found on it. But, if you are concerned with your family's nutrition, it would be good to search it for yourself. We know we don't eat right on the most part, but we keep doing so ... and then paying the medical bills for our poor choices.
