Kids and food

Since I’ve been trying to get my kids into gardening this summer, including the discussion of food as we do our grocery shopping on Saturday mornings, I thought I would share a couple of articles on kids and food.

The first one came out today actually, “Cookies Perch as No. 1 Snack For Kids Starts to Crumble” by Nanci Hellmich at USA Today. Yea!

Next, more good news. “Schools Trim Snacks, Stress Nutrition” by Stephanie Nano via the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

On a broader note, there is a great article on a book that I’ve been trying to get a hold of for awhile now entitled “Seedfolks” over at Ecospace. Since my computer froze last time attempting to find the link to the article, I willhave to post it tomorrow.  

Finally, half way around the world is where this article “Intrepid Group Sows Seeds of Environmental Awareness Among Iraqi Youth” by Kenny Luna at Treehugger comes from.
