A group of children was met around the exhibit, paddles in hand eager to betray another food deemed undesirable by the National Institutes of Health.

The game is called Go, Slow, and Whoa! Think Red Light, Green light, but for developing boys on the danger of being subjected to light bread. Kids who attended the USA Science and Engineering Festival this weekend in Washington , D.C ., used to play the taxpayer-funded activity and “ve been given” light-green, yellow, and cherry-red paddles.

Green is for go, be useful for foods the NIH guesses should be eaten all the time: low-fat, fewer calories, and no carbohydrate. The Gos include canned tuna, broccoli, oats, and low-fat string cheese.

Yellow, or brake, is used for nutrients that should be gobble sometimes, like 100 percent fruit juice, or a whole egg cooked with no fat.

Red is for Whoa !, and is used for meat the NIH says are required to be eaten on special opportunities. Red foods include whole milk, cheddar cheese, French fries, onion echoes, hot dog, bacon, tater tots, Fruit Loops, flannel-cakes, and Swiss cheese.

A peanut butter and jelly sandwich on white bread is a WHOA food, the NIH illustrates. But if you use whole-grain bread, sugar-free jelly, and low-fat peanut butter, it becomes a SLOW food.

The girls caught on instantly. A delicious-looking chocolate-glazed donut flashed across the television screen. They caused their red-faced paddles in unison. Some of the parents clapped.
