Join me at this Google Hangout to learn more about the role schools can play in preventing childhood obesity.
Most kids partake of school lunches.  And, as has been well documented, many of them leave much to be desired: Processed, colorless and full of fat and sugar. 
 
Some schools, though, are making changes.  Fresh food is on the menu – sometimes grown harvested by kids, on school property, and sometimes cooked by the students, too.  Education about good nutrition and its relationship to a healthy body weight is on the rise.  Are these efforts sustainable, and are they making a difference? Could the government do more to help? Join this week’s live online Google+ Hangout to discuss.  Our guests include Travis Robinson, Managing Director of The Kitchen Community, which helps schools set up their own edible gardens.
