    The Real Food Project {My Journey to Eliminate Highly Processed Foods in 2014}

    Posted by Rebekah Griffin-Gamble on January 15, 2014 at 1:58pm 0 Comments

    The package is lovely, with lots of berries and whole grains.  There was also an added note telling me that there was no “high fructose corn syrup” and that this product…

    SMARTER SNACKS IN SCHOOLS?

    Posted by Amy Kalafa on March 11, 2013 at 5:09pm 0 Comments

    Did you know that federal regulations governing school food don’t apply to the snack and junk food sold in your school’s cafeteria and vending machines?  That is about to change. The USDA will soon announce guidelines for “competitive” foods sold in schools – that is, all the food that competes with school meals, which are already regulated by the National School Lunch Program.  A USDA Press release touts these highlights from the “Smart Snacks in School” new standards:
