FOOD IS ELEMENTARY
"American children are being pressured in countless ways to eat diets loaded with processed foods, loaded with fat, sugar, and salt. That's a prescription for increased risk of obesity, diabetes, and heart disease. Antonia Demas has developed an important, creative, and delicious approach to encouraging kids to eat diets that will promote their health over the long run."
—Michael F. Jacobson, Ph.D., Executive Director, Center for Science in the Public Interest, Washington, D.C.
