We Can't Give In or Give Up

School Snacks and Children's Weight

It's back to school time again!  My Granddaughter starts school this year.  She is excited!  It's time to think about what our children are being served for breakfast, lunch and snacks in their schools.  With the increase in child obesity in the US, parents need to start monitoring what their children are eating not only at home, but also in their schools.                                                                                                                                                  

What do you think schools could do to provide healthy snack options for your kids?

The Great Soda Debate-A Ban on Soda by March 2013 in New York

I very rarely have a soda, and it has been that way since my early twenties.  When I do want one, I drink a coke.  I drink water, milk, orange juice, coffee and hot and iced tea.  So, for me, the soda has never been a big issue.  I do know, however, that for a lot of people, it is.
