Weekend Reading


I think the big nutrition news this week is Walmart's pledge to improve their house brand foods and lower the cost of fresh produce. Read about both dies of this coin over at the Huffington Post.

You can read La Vida Locavore's take on the USDA's crafting of the new nutritional standards for school unch here.  She includes a link to the USDA's public comment site so that we can all chime in.  (She also has something to say about the Wal-mart news and links to the NYT article.)

Chef Ann of school lunch reform fame is on a rampage against chocolate milk. see her last three blog posts. Share her rage.

But if you read JUST ONE THING -- pick this one.  Angry Mom Dr. Susan argues that healthier versions of junk food are still junk and the wrong way to raise our kids.  Better chicken nuggets are not the way to go. Real whole foods are.


Bhavani Jaroff's radio show had a guest discussing school gardens. Find the archives here.


The New York Botanical Gardens is giving tours of their healing plants collection. Well, it's kind of fun, I guess.
