HealthyLivingLink: NYT story on School Snack Food

And a note on the health benefits of Netflix

CM Editorial Comment

There's a story on the New York Times, website, suggested by Mary Keltner, Gradyville, KY, about nutritional guidelines for snack foods sold in schools it's: U.S. Releases New Rules for School Snack Foods. It's about how to combat the epidemic of obesity.

Not included in the story is an anecdotal coincidence: A young parent says that his kids are eating more nutritional foods because of Netflix. "We seldom watch regular television," he said, "and now the kids don't demand sugary cereals or other processed foods." The difference, he said, was that the ads for unhealthy foods seen on regular Tv aren't on Netflix. "We've seen a big difference," he said.

To that, he might have added the Health and Family Finances Hazards of School Fundraisers which capitalize on the sale of high priced, unneeded and unwanted, bad behavior promoting fat, sugary food sales. Aren't there better ways to do it? - EW
