When I opened the e-mail about an online course related to food marketing to youth, I thought it looked interesting. My schedule was full but at least with this on-line course I could work on it when I had the time. Having put the finishing touches on a new fact sheet addressing the obesity issue I hoped this course would reinforce my thinking about healthy food choices and give me some additional ideas of ways to impact healthy eating habits in others. Well, I was not disappointed.

An invitation to visit with a group of GBHS seniors enrolled in the nutrition and wellness class prompted me to revisit some good resources in my files.
