365 Ways #84–School nutrition Posted on September 02, 2010, 0 Comments
#84–Education begins at home. So does nutrition. But the fact is our kids often spend a large portion of their formative years in the school system. So the impact that schools have on how our children develop both academically and physically cannot be discounted. As parents we should get involved. Indeed, even if we don’t have any kids of our own, the development of children who will grow up to become professionals and parents and affect change in the world should be important to all of us.
If you agree, I urge you to sign Jamie Oliver’s petition to get real food into the schools (http://www.jamieoliver.com/campaigns/jamies-food-revolution/petition). After all, food controls our hormones. And our hormones control our thoughts, emotions, and even our actions. If we can feed our kids the way Nature intended, they have a greater chance of living in accordance with Nature–seeing the environment and the whole world as symbiotic with their own health and happiness.
