Kids Eat Right

I wanted to share with you some amazing facts:

-1 out of every 3 children are overweight or obese
-1 out of every 5 children in the UNITED STATES suffer from HUNGER.

Does that shock you as much as it did me?  There is a problem, on both ends of the spectrum, right here at home.

I had the opportunity to attend an amazing conference this past weekend (in beautiful Napa Valley) called "Kids Eat Right: Shop Cook Eat Summit" There is many organizations and researchers trying to help with both of these situations.

One resource that ties it all together is www.kidseatright.org  This program is there to help families, kids, schools and caregivers have the resources to shop, cook and eat healthier.

We need to work harder for the kids in our own country, we need to help them eat right and have all the opportunities they deserve. All of this starts with giving them the right food to fuel their lives.
