Weekend Reading, Watching and Fun


The lobbyists were hard at work this past week fighting over the Child Nutrition Act. Click here to read the press release by the frozen fruit lobby gloating over their ability to define "fresh" fruits to mean frozen - one example of many, I'm sure.

Jill Richardson of La Vida Locavore has a great description of the House committee hearings on the markup of the child nutrition act last week. For highly entertaining reading, click here.


Want to know more about high fructose corn syrup and the effects of sugary foods in general? Robert H. Lustig, MD, UCSF Professor of Pediatrics in the Division of Endocrinology, explores the damage caused by sugary foods in this video.


There's local fun this weekend - our neighbors will be putting on King Lear in Spooky Park Saturday evening at 7pm. Bring a blanket.
