Now that school is almost out and the pace in the TLT household is slowing down, it’s my goal to tackle a teetering bedside stack of kid-and-f00d reading. So this summer you can look forward to several book reviews and – yay! – book giveaways to add to your own summer reading list.
One of the titles I’ll be reviewing is Portion Size Me: A Kid-Driven Plan to a Healthier Family, in which 12-year-old author Marshall Reid recounts how he turned his own and his family’s life around with a new focus on healthier eating. I recently shared a New York Times account of his story on TLT’s Facebook page and many readers found it really inspiring. So I’m pleased to report that I’ll also be interviewing Marshall in conjunction with my review. Stay tuned!
On a related note, the Centers for Disease Control just shared with me a new infographic on portion sizes. We all know restaurant portions are bigger than they used to be but this graphic really brings it home, doesn’t it?
