  24. 2:30, Rm L3, The Principle Questions - A Mom On A Mission For Family Nutrition, Ricki Pepin: "We live at a time when more children are harmed by poor diet than exposure to alcohol, drugs and tobacco combined. Due to poor diet this generation of children has a shorter life expectancy than their parents." (Dr. David Katz, Director, Yale University Prevention Research Center) One third of children born after the year 2000 will have Type II Diabetes. One half of all children will be obese by 2010. Cancer kills more children than any other disease. It's time to get as serious about our children's health as we are about their character development and education. Come and learn about Dr. Sears "Traffic Light Eating" - red-light, yellow-light and green-light foods - and learn Nine Simple Steps to better health. Sometimes it seems almost impossible to feed our families a healthy diet. Nutritious food can seem unappealing to a child, and from an adult perspective, just too time-consuming to prepare. But kids who eat healthy foods are healthier kids. So feeding children a nutritious diet is a good investment. But getting 5-9 servings of fresh fruits and vegetables into our children every day is truly the "impossible dream!" Or is it? Come and learn about red-light, yellow-light and green-light foods and teaching your children how to participate in CHOOSING and EATING healthy foods. - >
