Quote:
...Childhood snacking trends are moving toward three snacks per day, and more than 27 percent of children's daily calories are coming from snacks. .....Children increased their caloric intake by 113 calories per day from 1977 to 2006," they added.....
"This raises the question of whether the physiological basis for eating is becoming deregulated, as our children are moving toward constant eating."


How many times have we all voiced frustration with the constant snacks being offered kids.

Thanks BC2007 - we just can't say it enough.

Go Michelle Obama - I hope the profile she brings will cause people to think about their kids' weight – and health.

FYI, for any who haven't read it, this was Allergic Living's "Food in the Class" article:

It's very interesting that there is a place where allergy concerns and nutrition issues intersect.
