Escaping the Junk Food Trap

News, articles and specials from Natural Grocers by Vitamin Cottage. Giving kids the healthy foundation they need with real nutrition. Junk food vending machines in schools, a school lunch program built on subsidized commodity crops, and an industrial food system that is driven to sell to children and their unwitting parents. It’s no wonder a third of our children are overweight or obese; type-2 diabetes has become a common childhood disease; ADHD rates have risen by 41 percent in the last decade; and children regularly report feelings of depression and anxiety. And according to the Centers for Disease Control, food allergies among children under the age of 18 have increased by 50 percent since the late nineties. While these problems likely have varied social, environmental, and economic factors, it is clear that a fundamental change is needed in our children’s diets. It’s not hard to see that a change in diet could vastly improve children’s health. From growing strong bones, to having energy to play, to being able to focus and problem solve, children’s bodies and brains require a steady supply of energy and nutrients to function properly. Ensuring that kids eat a nutrient-dense diet that maintains blood sugar balance throughout the day is no less important than making sure they brush their teeth, wear clean underwear, or look both ways before crossing the street. And it builds the foundation for a healthy body and brain for life.
