Teaser Tuesday is hosted by Miz B at Should Be Reading. Head on over to find out all about it, and how to join in!
This past week I’ve been reading Lunch Wars: How to Start a School Food Revolution and Win the Battle for Our Childrens Health by Amy Kalafa which is equal parts horrifying and empowering. But more on that Thursday. For now, here is a teaser:
Americans spend $200 billion per year in diet-related health care costs; twice as much per person than any other developed nation. The estimated annual cost of obesity is $123 billion-half of which is paid for by Medicare and Medicaid.
and one more, for good measure. The most upsetting line in the whole book, for me:
Our kids might be the first generation in history on track to lead shorter lives than their parents.
I have so many more I could share! And will! Thursday!
