Is the Clean Plate Club a thing of the past? Depending on your age, you may have been invited (or required) to join this not-so-elite club as a child. You may have been made to feel guilty. The location of the starving children changed according to the news, but your parents may have called on you to save them by eating everything on your plate. And you may have retorted, "SO SEND IT TO THEM!"
Those parents' hearts were in the right place. Like them, I don't want my children to waste food, and I do want them to appreciate what they have, but the Clean Plate Club isn't how we do it here anymore.
