Rethinking The Food Label

Have you ever thought that the “Nutritional Facts” on the back of a box doesn’t really give you the whole picture? Well, so have many other folks and they’ve decided that crowdsourcing ideas is a place to start. So a contest has been born. Rethink The Food Label: Nutrition. Conversation. Design. Deadline is July 1st. […]

Breakfast in the classroom: example ten

 Pancakes, fruit cup, milk (syrup not pictured)   I like that you can tell the breakfast was carried in a sack: all the little pancakes fell to one side! I’m not really feeling this breakfast.

Flavored milk update

This just in: the Los Angeles Unified School District voted on Tuesday to ban flavored milk. I welcome this initiative because I don’t think schools should be in the business of giving kids sugary milk every day.

Breakfast in the classroom: example nine

Banana (top), “pink” yogurt, grahams Surprisingly, I reviewed the ingredients in the yogurt and guess what? No artificial flavors (No Red #40!). Well, knock me over with a feather.
