The NYT article was interesting. Self-reports, particularly from kids, are not terribly reliable and I wonder if that was taken into account. Also, the recommendation that schools do more to encourage healthy eating at home was nice, but flawed for 2 reasons. 1) Schools already have a LOT to do and 2) recommendations mean little if healthy food is not available. I study public health and we found that in my city, many of the poor neighborhoods (where there is a higher rate of obesity) don’t have access to grocery stores. The best they have is a seven eleven. Those don’t exactly carry fresh fruits and veggies. Also, healthy food tends to be more expensive than unhealthy food. I’m not really addressing soda pop here, but just look at white bread vs wheat bread or the cost of fresh produce.

Mom Said It

"We weren't trying to have kids. We left it up to fate. I knew there was a possibility, but I was really excited. Even if you are trying, just to see a positive result is shocking!"
