To the editor of THE EAGLE:

I was truly shocked at the winning recipe choice for "Superbowl Party Treats’’ in The Berkshire Eagle which was announced Wednesday. In this era of increased awareness about healthy eating options, and the importance of teaching our young people to eat well and to prepare wholesome, life affirming good food, this recipe was the best you could come up with?

There is nothing natural or healthy in any way in this recipe -- period! Quick and easy to make? Why not take a little more time and care in the preparation of a good and healthy treat for the football game, and aren’t our friends, and children and fellow sports fans worth it?!

Let’s raise the bar on great healthy food not lower it to such a degrading, uninspired, level!
