Weekend Reading


Read this piece in the Times on how the processed food industry has destroyed school lunch and created a nation of obese children.

Then read this piece over on Better DC School Food on the millions the food industry is spending on their 'right' to market junk food to kids.

There's a great guest post at Fed Up with School Lunch on how our early eating habits - including those in the school cafeteria - affect us later in life and what we can do to influence kids to make healthier choices.

Speaking of big food advertising, McDonald's is about to try to convince you that their food, too, is "farm fresh". Check out the Small Bites blog.

Petitions to Sign

Help the CSPI tell the FDA that we need to cut the level of salt in the nations' food supply.
