The FDA announced an overhaul of how foods will be labeled (compliance by 2018 for big food companies and by 2019 for smaller companies; that seems like a long time off). If you like to consume your news in video form, this short WSJ video is helpful.

Last week with kids in the Idaho I Have a Dream program, I explored a very powerful topic as related to food—advertising. Children are exposed to over 20,000 advertisements per year (about 55 ads per day). I pulled information for my lesson from a previous Healthy Kids post.
