Re: Let's talk childhood obesity....

it is all about education. Many parents in todays society lack the education. A good friend of mine goes into schools and teaches the kids about fresh fruits/veggies and healthier options. You would be amazed at what the kids do not know and have never been exposed to. The last one she did was on cantaloupe. The kids had no idea what it was.

My DH went and had lunch with our oldest at school and he came home and said he was so saddened by what many of the kids brought from home for lunch (not the actual school lunch) he said one kid pulled out a bag of dorritos, candy bar and a fruit by the foot. that was his lunch.
wife and mom-- no other special labels. Just trying to do the best I can.
