  1. Hello Sophia,
    Great presentation! I enjoyed viewing your presentation and also learned a great deal about school nutrition and children obesity. The unexpected finding was the percentage of High School student who drinks at least three glasses of milk per day. There is a decrease of 4% from 1999-2007, well I wonder what the number will be five years from now. We as advocates of social change need to work harder to educate the public about behavioral change as well as to convincing the public health providers to increase prevention and implementation method for a better and quality health for our youth. Thanks.

    • Marie, I think I posted my reply to your comment as another comment instead of directly replying to you. Thanks again for posting your comment.

  2. Marie, thank you for posting your comment. I agree that we should continue to work harder to educate the public about behavioral change and work with public health providers to increase prevention and implementation methods for better health for our youth. In five years, I believe we will see more of a decrease if we do not advocate to reduce the amount of marketing that takes place on school campuses for unhealthy snacks, including soda machines.
