Food Dudes trial healthy eating initiative (From Knutsford Guardian)
“The garden is a tangible reminder of healthy living and sustainability,” said Edith Ballesteros-Vargas, director of BEST Fit at LA’s BEST. “We’ll use it as an outdoor classroom to teach garcinia cambogia extract our students that today’s plastic bottle can help nurture tomorrow’s school garden. This is a great example of Expanded Learning thinking outside the classroom.” For the second straight year, the American Chemistry Council is sponsoring an installation of a “green garden” at an LA’s BEST school site. Last year, elected officials joined ACC and community members to enhance gardens at Hooper Avenue and Los Feliz elementary schools. The project aims to encourage young people to help protect the planet by recycling every day, at home and at school. “We want to inspire future generations to practice healthy habits,” said Steve Russell, vice president of plastics for the American Chemistry Council.

Using behaviour change methods, Food Dudes aim to increase childrens consumption of fruit and vegetables and decrease the intake of sweet and fatty foods. The new programme is being piloted by a year four class at St Vincents RC primary school which, along with Tatton MP George Osborne, was demonstrated to Cheshire East councillor Rachel Bailey. I announced at the Autumn Statement last week the launch of free school meals to key stage one school children, said Mr Osborne. So its great to see today a local school and a local organisation, in my own constituency in Tatton, running a programme designed to encourage children to make healthy eating choices. With real evidence behind it, the Food Dudes programme and initiatives such as these will help ensure that the governments investment in free school meals will not only help hardworking families on cost, but will have a real impact in helping to improve healthy eating. Year four pupil Nevan Kiernan said: The blueberries are my favourite, and Mange Tout, Ive had something like them before but at school was the first time I tried them and they are really good. By the time they leave primary school, more than a third of all children in the North West are overweight or obese.

When eating healthy turns obsessive
(Directories of eating-disorder experts can be found on the website of the International Association of Eating Disorder Professionals.) The ultimate recovery from an eating disorder is to get beyond labeling foods good or bad, Dear says. “You have to reach a self-loving place, not a virtuous http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/garcinia-cambogia-extract—crucial-data-released-231403591.html place. It would be helpful [for] clinicians to have their radar out for orthorexia because it is easily misread as just healthy eating when it can be a major problem.” Moodley no longer considers herself orthorexic. Her work with clients made her realize that the correct diet is different for each individual and helped her overcome her orthorexia. But when she discusses her diet today, a sense of pride still lingers in her voice. To some, her diet was the epitome of healthy perfection. She said she still maintains a healthy diet, but now it is a preference as opposed to an obsession.
