On Tuesday, New York City Mayor Eric Adams praised the forthcoming Joe Biden’s conference on food issues in September.
Adams said the conference is a “once-in-a-generation” opportunity to reset how Americans approach food and reverse the ill effects that unhealthy eating causes.
He said New Yorkers should start thinking and eating healthy to live long and happy.
“We have to start with our children. They learn healthy ways,” Adams said.
“They go home to mommy and daddy, and they teach mommy and daddy healthy ways,” Adams added.
The Democratic mayor said they are plotting ways to change the eating habits of parents and children of the Big Apple.
“People think they’re washing the car and suddenly realize they’re learning karate,” he said.
“Do you know right now at Health and Hospitals, we have the default for plant-based meals — a default, you get that automatically? If you don’t want it, you ask for something else … We must not feed the chronic disease. We must feed ways of healing,” he added.
