While I'm randomly abusing the government, what about this?
The document classes 1.6 million families with children aged between two and 11 as "high risk". It states: "Food has become an expression of love in 'at risk' families.

The horror. Food should be an unpleasant necessity shoved down because authority says so. Everyone knows that - it's how it works in the most expensive private schools, and in the most expensive state institutions as well. And they can't be wrong - they're too expensive.

Of course, later in life it can be an opportunity to display merit through consumption, as long as you make amends by reading the Thoughts of Madeleine Bunting. But an expression of love? That's like those perverted Arabs and their erotic desire for women.

"...we can call these delicate creatures ours, And not their appetites!"

The cry of authority throughout the ages.
