School Nutrition: The Impossible Dream?
Monday, President Obama signed the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act --a bipartisan bill that will simultaneously tackle childhood hunger and obesity by getting healthier food into schools and by expanding free and reduced lunch programs at schools across the nation. It's the first update to school nutrition since the Carter Administration. So what will that mean here in Hampton Roads? Today on HearSay, we'll talk with Helen Phillips, Senior Director of Norfolk Public Schools Nutrition. We'll also hear from super-blogger Catherine McCord, who works tirelessly on her blog "weelicious" to help parents instill healthy eating habits in their children, and themselves.


Guests:
Helen Phillips, SNS - Director of School Nutrition, Norfolk Public Schools and National School Lunch Association President-elect
Marion Nestle, Ph.D. - NYU - Paulette Goddard Professor of Nutrition, Food Studies, and Public Health
Chef Ann Cooper - School Nutrition Activist "The Renegade Lunch Lady"
Michael Graziano - Filmmaker, "Lunch Line"
Catherine McCord - Blogger and Child Nutrition Activist
