Food Fight!

As a follow-up to my post about school lunch menus in Italy versus the US, I recently read that there are some school districts that are fighting the fat, shedding the soda machines, and banning the bad stuff. Kudos to them! Complimenti!

Read about the Ten Healthiest Schools in America.

Hopefully they will provide inspiration and mentoring for parents and educators who want to enact similar changes in their own communities. Kids (and their parents!) *can* learn to eat well, choose healthy fare, and enjoy it.

Like lists? Visit Health.com where you get a run-down on other "healthiests" in the land, including airports, grocery stores, and more.
