We all know that choosing healthy food for ourselves and our children leads to better health, improved behavior, and more success in school and sports.  Then why is it hard to do?  Dr. Nestle has researched the way food is marketed to us and our children in the media, grocery stores, and restaurants.  She will explain these methods, why they work, and offer practical suggestions for how to counter them so that we can make better food choices.

  • Are your children healthy eaters?
  • How does marketing affect our food choices?
  • How can we resist the hype so we can eat healthier?
