Fruits, Veggies & Kids

Last night, after watching my 18 month old devour several asparagus spears and repeatedly asking for bites of lettuce, I happened upon a clip advertising a new television show set to premier on ABC this fall. Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution is set in Huntington, W. Va. (the CDC ranked the community in 2008 America's least healthy city) and the premier shows the lack of knowledge six-year-olds have about common fruits and veggies.

Based on my little guy's eating habits, I'm glad that I don't think I have to worry. Still, we all should be concerned... maybe more kids should have their parents read Foodie Babies Wear Bibs (An Urban Babies Wear Black Book).
