1. Childhood obesity rates in Philadelphia have declined from 21.7% to 20.3% over the past seven years and are continuing a downward trend. The Philadelphia school district is making strides to create healthier school lunches and offer more healthful snacks. It’s great to see this city heading in the right direction. Childhood obesity increases the immediate risk for cardiovascular disease, diabetes, bone and joint problems, sleep apnea, and social and psychological problems, such as poor self-esteem. Long-term children that are obese are likely to be obese as adults. {New York Times}


2. How weird are your eating habits? I would choose french fries, cake, and Guy Fieri over home fries, pie, and Bobby Flay any day! {BuzzFeed}


3. Here are 12 ways to eat more avocados! Yes. Please. Avocados are loaded with healthy fats that help your body absorb fat-soluble nutrients, like vitamin E and potassium. Vitamin E is key for a healthy immune system and glowing skin. One avocado gives us about 1/3 of the recommended dietary allowance of vitamin E. {Bon Appetit}
