Over the past three decades, childhood obesity rates in America have tripled, and today, nearly one in three children in America are overweight or obese. The numbers are even higher in African American and Hispanic communities, where nearly 40% of the children are overweight or obese. If we don't solve this problem, one third of all children born in 2000 or later will suffer from diabetes at some point in their lives.

With the new administration’s budget proposal for 2018, ~aka~ the "skinny budget", schools are afraid that some of the cuts will include funding to programs that provided free breakfast and lunch to kids. Oftentimes, these meals are the only nutritious ones that they receive on a daily basis.  Now more than ever, we have to work together as a family sharing knowledge and expertise and not look to the government to keep us healthy and safe because that is not going to be the case at least not for the next 4 years.
