A little time teaching and training a child and adults about nutrition and utilizing the ingredients when they are in season and at the peak of taste can go a long way to putting you on track to healthy eating. One thing I do is partially cook long cook or steel cut oats and place them in jelly jars - half the grains and half the cooking liquid in each jar. Seal them up and wait until they cool to room temp - then refrigerate. Place items such as your favorite dried fruits and nuts in small snack bags and keep pure maple syrup on hand. In the morning you can pop off the top of the jar and reheat the oats in the microwave - then add the fruit and nuts and a bit of pure maple syrup for a nutritious wholesome breakfast that is loaded with all the right things to keep your energy up and your stomach full for hours. This is also good to grab in the morining and take it to work with you.

yes we need to know what we're eating , how it's grown, where it's grown, how it's killed, what they add in it and from country. It's our money and our right to know before we buy.

Our school Wilson Montessori is a title one school and has an Urban Harvest program which teaches about gardening and nutrition. Last week I made baba ganouj with eggplants from the garden and served it at lunch with carrots, broccoli and cauliflower from the garden. They loved it.

FOOD GLORIOUS FOOOOD

If it's taught in schools kids have the opportunity to relay the information to parents who may not know. But really most people know what foods are good for you basically.

My friend is an Apple teacher who works to do just this. Sadly it is the parents who buy the groceries however and guess who is the hardest to convince re what is best for their children? Adults have a stronger sense of reasoning so they reason their way past the healthy foods and go to the sugar coated cereals and toaster streudals. Many parents feel that giving their children granola bars as part of their lunch to be a healthy thing. However, they don't read the labels and the kid might as well take a chocolate bar to school in many cases.
