|The colorful solution to childhood obesity? Photo by muammerokumus|
Obesity is a massive problem in the U.S. and many other countries around the planet.
Now apparently there is some good news in terms of childhood obesity dropping a bit in several U.S cities and states.
What sort of rocket science or other wizardry has been able to turn the tide?
Apparently, the improvement can be credited to children eating more fruits and vegetables and fewer unhealthy fried/processed foods.
Sometimes the answers to our problems are so simple.
And sometimes many of them can be found in the garden either directly (where said fruits and vegetables grow) or indirectly (virtues of hard work, growing what you consume and caring for an environment with the potential to nurture you).
