A Call for Kids to Eat Healthier

A Call for Kids to Eat Healthier

The Healthy Kid Project is a free educational online program that serves as a call to action for kids and their families to eat healthy. The project, which starts tomorrow, Friday, Sept. 18, has a six-week curriculum that introduces children to a diet of at least 75 percent plants, abundant in fruits, vegetables, whole grains and legumes. This starkly contrasts with the typical Western diet, heavy in meat and processed foods.

The program aims at reducing our carbon footprint by shifting to a plant-rich diet that not only decreases food waste but may be the single -most-effective way to reduce carbon emissions. In addition, plant-rich diets, are low in calories and saturated fat. This can greatly reduce the future risk of obesity, type-2 diabetes, heart disease and certain types of cancer.
