  1. This is such an important subject, I heard on the today show a few weeks ago that our children today will have a lower life expectancy then us as adults. That is such a scary statistic. We have to correct this problem.

  2. Interesting topic & presentation. I totally agree and have been an advocate for better nutrition in schools asfor many years. I have three children now 27, 25 & 21. I woke up every morning, made breakfast and ensured that my children all had & took their lunches to school after hearing them complain about the long lines and the type of food served and them not having the ability to focus in class. Once I started preparing their lunches the complaints went away and of course the struggle of having to stay focus in class was not a concern any longer.

    More should be done about nutrition in schools as we have heard time & time again how politicians during election time make this one of their issues until they are in office and it goes on deaf ears.
