Introducing Kids To Sweet Potatoes & More

Filed under: Health — @ August 19, 2006

See this well-researched article in tomorrow’s New York Times Magazine from prolific writer Lisa Belkin about what’s being done at schools across the country to improve school lunches.

Hurrah to the New York Times for drawing attention to this important subject when 17 % of our nation’s children are overweight, the obesity rate of adolescents has triped since 1980, and some 30 to 40 percent are expected to develop diabetes (according to the CDC) if the trend continues.

Unfortunately, I really can’t write more about this right now, because my thumb is horribly throbbing and hurting.
