I Took The Pledge!
An Ounce Of Nutrition
"I am taking the pledge because I’ve seen firsthand how “real” food and nutrition can help kids stay healthy now and into the future. And how choosing responsibly-made foods can help protect our planet and promote a better world. I would love to see the next generation free of the chronic diseases that many of their parents will experience including; heart disease, diabetes and cancer. My dream would be that every child, in every school has the opportunity to learn how they can create a healthier future for themselves and the world around them!"

I believe that all kids should have access to healthy food and the information needed to making healthy decisions. Healthy Food is a right not a privilege.
Nutrition education is critically important for our youth to grow up healthy and achieve academically. Now is the time for every school to include nutrition education for all students in every grade. This shouldn't be a one week curriculum but rather content used throughout the school year in health education and in other classes, too.
In order to push back against the deliberate confusion that the food and beverage industry causes from their less-than-truthful nutrition claims, we need to reach our students at a very young age so that they can make healthy and wholesome choices!

I took the pledge because I feel that today's students are taking a real interest in what they put in their bodies. They deserve to have available tools to learn the benefits of nutritional education and how it affects them personally & academically. I hope that schools take note of the benefits of nutrition. Kids today are "starving" for this sort of information!
