As the school year draws to a close, I tackle one of the great pillars of school fund-raising in this week’s Nutrition Diva podcast. With one out of three of our school kids now over-weight, the time has come to wean our school from their addiction to candy and bake sales as a way to raise money. And when it comes time to pack the kids (or your) lunch, you might be interested in this Q&A on packaged vs. fresh deli meats from this week’s Nutrition Diva newsletter.
This week also included lots of tips and guidance for those trying to watch their weight. On the Quick and Dirty Blog, you’ll find my take on raspberry ketones, the latest weight loss-in-a-bottle scheme. I also talked with CBS News about calorie cycling and with XETV in San Diego about the role of fats in a healthy diet.
