  6. Wow thanks everyone for all the wonderful support.

    Tabor, I am really hopeful that the food programs improve; ideally, here in Canada as well. I'm glad to hear that Michelle Obama is acting on this front as well.

  7. Glad to come visiting (from Barry's place). As far as food in schools, what is convenient and cheep is almost never healthy, so they have a tough job. I like your topics!

  9. Living in Italy you think there is no need of a food campaign in the schools..but there is something similar that has just started this year in my son's school, it is a campaign about "more fruit in the schools" during the morning breaks..it is working great!
    I like your blog!..and love Jamie...

  10. It's good to see Jamie taking a serious message outside of the UK.

    Like your dad, I'm a big fan of the TED lectures. If you get the time, do watch Ken Robinson. I have a clip at http://square-sunshine.blogspot.com/2009/07/by-rote.html
