We have all seen national headlines about childhood obesity, Type 2 diabetes in children and the overall health and social costs of U.S. obesity rates. Michelle Obama has been a champion of raising awareness of these critically important issues.
But where is Laguna Beach in this picture? On Oct. 19, Coffee Break hosted both our school district Food Service Manager Debra Appel and local registered dietitian Melanie Silverman to bring interested parents and educators up to speed on local nutritional practices in our schools and guiding common-sense basics.
Appel is a woman of passion when it comes to feeding our children in the most wholesome, organic, sustainable and scrumptious way possible. She detailed how the district has always been ahead of the curve in terms of improving food offerings.
