France: When babies whine, give them wine.

Yesterday, we asked you what you thought about junk food in American schools and you all found it frightening. Well, folks, fathom this: French parliamentarians are advocating the shameless promotion of wine amongst school-aged children. The wine industry in France is suffering, and winemakers are blaming young children because of their foolish preferences for "other" beverages. A report argued that France must launch an education campaign to teach kids how to appreciate wine because "learning about healthy living starts from childhood and primary school...To hold a forceful position in the world, French wine must first assume a strong position at home."

In other news, France loses 45,000 people to alcohol-related deaths a year.

I'm currently in high school, and I've been studying French since I was three. In france, wine is literally drank like water. for children, though, they will take a few drops mixed with water. ~* “I think the thing to do is to enjoy the ride while you're on it.” -Johnny Depp *~
