FLP Meeting (2/5): Food Marketing to Children Children today may be the first generation to live shorter lives than their parents. According to the CDC, overweight rates have doubled among children and tripled among adolescents since 1980. More than one out of every three U.S. children born in 2000 is expected to get diabetes in their lifetime. The food environment is this country, particularly how food is marketed to children, makes it extremely difficult to get children to accept healthy eating habits. On Friday, 2/5 at 10am, the Food for Life and the Planet committee will explore how unhealthy foods are affecting our kids, and what we can do to introduce them to healthy, plant-based yummy alternatives. Come join the conversation! Email Denise McLeod at firstname.lastname@example.org prior to the meeting for articles and videos that will be discussed.
