Weekend Reading


I think the food story of this week is definitely the FDA's decision to review food dyes and behavioral issues in kids and a long campaign by the Center for Science in the Public Interest.  Their research on which dyes to avoid is clearly laid out here.

You can find the WSJ's coverage of the FDA hearings here or the Times here.

The Spoonfed blog also covered the issue.

The Obama administration has proposed new rules covering food vendors and labeling calories, etc.

The School Nutrition Assoc apparently has some issues with the Reauthorization of the Child Nutrition Act (i.e. school lunch program) but I'm still kinda excited about it. You decide.

Sea Cliffians Sarah Ellis and Kristen Henderson have a new book out this week - Times Two. It has nothing to do with nutrition but it does end in Sea Cliff.


WNYC's Brian Lehrer interviewed Marion Nestle on the food dye issue. They also happened to mention that she has a book out on healthy eating -- for your pet.


Have Breakfast on Sunday with Buffalo Bill and Annie Oakley at Coe Hall at the Planting Fields.
