I'm in the Philly area and I just saw on the news a couple of weeks ago that one of the city hospital's has a fitness room set up for kids and attached to it is a kitchen. In the kitchen they teach the parents and kids how to read labels and understand them. Then they prepare a healthy meal or snack. I thought that was such a great idea! A lot of people don't know what to look for on a label. I also think many people fall into the category of "everyone else is or does". Meaning all the other kids eat it and comparing my child to other kids their age he looks normal. The sad thing is they are comparing their child to obese kids and thinking its normal. It is sad how high the obesity rates are right now
