Let’s Talk!

I’m adding a post category called “Let’s Talk!” in order to further ignite our conversations.  At this point in my blog’s history, I’m determined to encourage commentary and dialogue among subscribers, instead of individual subscribers talking to me and only me.  Therefore, the “Let’s Talk!” series will consist of a soundbite from an individual, business, company, etc., and I am asking all of you to react to the quote, compare/contrast your opinions with other followers, and reach new conclusions about the vast umbrella that is the food world!  So without further ado, below is the first soundbite for “Let’s Talk!”

“Every public school in the country should have a nutrition-education curriculum.”

-Cat Cora

Do you agree or disagree with Cat Cora’s assessment?  Should nutrition education fall under the responsibility of the school district a child attends, or is it best for this type of learning to be left at home in the hands of parents and guardians?

I can’t wait to hear what you think!

Until Next Week… Plan Well, Pack Well, Live Well,

Katie 🙂

    I completely agree. I think the obesity epidemic in our nation is partly based on the fact that parents today were not taught proper nutrition… It is my generations responsibility to make the world a better place for our future!! That statement encompasses many items, however better health and nutrition falls under that very large umbrella. Too much knowledge in my opinion is not a bad thing, but too much junk/unhealthy food is!!!

    I couldn’t agree more with both Cat Cora and Jen! I also think that kids are often more willing to learn from people other than their parents, so it’s important to make nutrition education available outside of the home. However, I do think that as conscious and responsible eating becomes more and more popular as it has recently, there will be more and more kids that don’t need the education because that is how they’ve always eaten. That being said, there will always be kids in a community that would greatly benefit from a nutrition education.
