It amazes me what propels researchers to research – even the ‘duh’ revelations they arrive at that may seem trivial, but I’m glad they do it. “We found that when you take soda and high-fat snacks out of schools, students did not compensate at home,” reports Marlene Schwartz PhD, head researcher in Connecticut.
Good to know! One of my observations was recognized in this study – our society has created easy, cheap, and convenient ways to eat unhealthy food and it seems like the NORM. It’s NOT. School is where education prevails – let’s band together to reduce junk food in schools, even to the chagrin of food industry who seek to build brand loyalty and schools who make money on their attempts.
