Watch One Nation, Overweight, an Original Documentary airing on CNBC on May 18 at 8 pm (EST). Whilethin is so desired, we just keep getting fatter, and at a younger age. Scott Wapner reports on the real cost of the nation’s obesity crisis, and who is profiting—which may result in our children becoming the first generation to have a shorter life expectancy than their parents. The challenge of feeding school aged children well gets a special focus with a visit to Revolution Foods, an Oakland, CA start-up that provides healthy, organic, home-style meals to schools and gets a thumbs up.
Whether you watch it, catch it on YouTube or Hulu, or just hear about it, I hope it prompts you to start making demands that healthier–fresh, unprocessed, colorful–meals appear in front of the children in your school district. It’s long overdue.
