School Lunch Update
How Good is Your Child's School Lunch Program?

Note: Even if you don't have kids in school, if you eat processed foods, this is a MUST read!

Many schools are becoming more conscious about serving healthier foods and are taking steps to improve the quality of food offered to students for lunches and snacks.

There are two questions to ask here:
1. If your child's school has taken the steps, have they gone far enough?
2. If they haven't, why not?

Here's a story about a second grade experiment that will give you reason to eat healthier, unprocessed foods and ask your school to offer healthier choices to your children.

Why Schools Should Remove Gene-Altered Foods from Their Cafeterias

The Price of Organic vs Non-organic Food

No matter where you shop for your groceries, you may have noticed that prices are on the rise. You might be surprised to find out that conventionally grown foods may soon become more expensive than organic.

According to a recent article in the Daily Telegraph, the rising cost of oil is a big factor in the increased food prices. And oil plays a much more major role in conventional farming methods than organic. For that reason, you may just find organic food priced lower than conventionally produced food. How fortunate that would be!

To get the freshest and healthiest produce, shop your local farmer's market. Many local farmers avoid pesticides, even if they are not producing organic food. However, there are some who grow organic produce according to the organic standards, but due to the high cost of becoming certified organic, they do not get certified and therefore cannot call their produce organic.

Talk to the farmers and find out how they farm. You may not only get healthier food than in the conventional grocery stores, but it will also be fresher.

To remind yourself about the importance of fresh healthy foods without the pesticide load, see Food Matters
