In the News: A day dedicated to food awareness


 
You probably know that October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, but today also marks another awareness day that we can all relate to: National Food Day. Our country’s tendency to be unhealthy eaters has been a topic for quite a long time, so today’s goal is to spread awareness of healthy eating habits and other food issues.
 
Schools and other organizations are running thousands of food-related events today concentrated on eating well, buying local foods and food deserts (rural areas where fresh foods are hard to come by). Social media has even spread word of a so-called “carrotmob,” where people get together to purchase local fresh produce from struggling markets.
   
Even if you’re not participating in a National Food Day event, take some time to figure out how you eat. If you’ve been hitting up the drive-thru or eating frozen meals lately, think about having mom or dad cook more meals with fresh products. Or better yet, plan and cook meals together. Eating right starts at home, so encourage everyone in your family to start eating healthy.
 
What do you think about all this, girls? Some schools are adding a week of food classes for their students in honor of National Food Day. Would you like to see something similar in your schools, or do you think it’s unnecessary? And most of all, how do you make sure to eat healthy?
