Our children are no longer guaranteed a safe and healthy childhood, not in the face of the epidemic rates of ADHD, allergies, autism, asthma, diabetes and obesity.
As I reflect this week on the food allergy story about bullying, on friends who have lost their loved ones to cancer, and on the changing landscape of our food system, the importance of healthy eating cannot be underestimated. And while none of us can do everything, we can all do one thing.
As we work together, nurturing our children and inspiring each other to eat more real food together, we will affect remarkable change in the health of our families and the health of our country.
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever does.” ~Margaret Meade
