An End to Ridiculous Beauty Standards… for Vegetables

Posted by Irresponsibility

The EU has dumped legislation dictating beauty standards for fruit and veg.

This is terrific because:
A) It’s arrogant, wasteful and petulant to refuse to eat perfectly nutritious food because it ‘looks funny’. Think of the hungry children.
B) Maybe the idea that conformity to an arbitrary standard isn’t the be-all and end-all will eventually spread up the food chain.

I live in hope.
