Butter vs. Margarine
By Jennifer Kenny
  

1     Mom and Josh were walking up and down the aisles in the grocery store. They bought apples, bananas, bread, cheese, and milk. When they got to the butter and margarine, Mom spent a painfully long time reading all the labels.
 
2     "What are you doing, Mom?" Josh asked.
 
3     Mom replied, "I'm comparing labels."
 
4     "Why?" Josh asked. "Usually you just buy the one that's on sale."
 
5     "Well, Daddy was told by his doctor to watch his cholesterol and take better care of his heart by exercising and eating right. I'm just trying to make better food choices to help out," Mom said.
 
6     "Is there a difference between butter and margarine?" Josh asked.
 
7     "There sure is. Daddy likes to use them the same way when eating, but there are differences," Mom answered.
 
8     "Like what?" Josh asked. "Is one really healthier than the other?"
 
9     "That's a great question," Mom said. "The doctor said there are differences, and, in general, margarine tops butter in terms of health."
