From AP via Chattanooga Times Free Press:
” In the battle against obesity, just about everything is on the table, from creating healthier kids’ meals to nagging people to exercise. … Experts are looking beyond government policies to unusual partners. Frozen vegetable maker Birds Eye, for instance, is beginning a $6 million campaign to encourage kids to eat their veggies.”
What about looking at the way our cities our built? The way we get around town and access to actives transportation modes? The proximity of schools to walkable communities? Access to fresh, healthy foods?
Do those options for stamping out obesity necessarily require action on behalf of mega food corporations? What if we just told people to eat LESS instead of MORE of any one thing in particular? What if we nagged people to walk for 15 minutes a day, not 150 minutes a week?
Mysteries in the messages…
