Children (and Adults) Make Healthier Food Choices if they Know where Food Comes From
According to Stuart O’Neill, people are more likely to make healthier food choices if they know where food comes from and understand the difference between naturally grown and commercially processed foods. O’Neill was interviewed on the Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water talk radio show of April 30, 2012. He works with Rogue Farm Corps, a southern Oregon based volunteer educational program.
O’Neill believes that farm experiences are important because only 1% of the U.S. population participates in commercial agriculture. In Rogue Farm Corps’ Farms Next Program, students live on a host farm for a season, during which they participate in the farm operation, tour other farms and attend classes organized by Rogue Farm Corps.
Stuart O’Neill and Sharon Kleyne were surprised that only 1% to 2% of food sold in Southern Oregon supermarkets are locally grown. Sharon Kleyne observed that, “What you put in your mouth determines your health. Natural, healthy foods are not expensive and fresh produce costs less than prepared foods.”
The Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water is broadcast live on Mondays, 10 a.m., PST/PDT. The syndicated talk show is heard on Voice America/World Talk Radio, Green Talk Network and Apple iTunes.
