Childhood obesity is a huge issue in the U.S.
because nutrition and portion control are not being
stressed in schools and in some households.
“Food design, after all, is about more than the food – it’s also about creating an experience around the food that’s just as delicious as the food itself. And those experiences can impact behaviors – in this case, fostering better eating habits in kids.” Joey Zeledon
“Ten percent of what we spend on health care is on obesity, and it’s going to double. We’re not teaching our kids. There’s no statutory right to teach kids about food, elementary or secondary school.” Jamie Oliver
