Don’t miss the scathing must-read New York Times Sunday Review piece by Lucy Komisar about how the food industry is making American kids “fat and sick” while raking in profits. Here’s an excerpt:

“One-third of children from the ages of 6 to 19 are overweight or obese. These children could see their life expectancies shortened because of their vulnerability to diabetes, heart disease and cancer. Unfortunately, profit, not health, is the priority of the food service management companies, food processors and even elected officials. Until more parents demand reform of the school lunch system, children will continue to suffer.”
