Guest Post: School meals and childhood obesity: is the connection as strong as we think?

Earlier this week during an in-office conversation about America’s obesity epidemic (these conversations happen a lot at FoodCALC) I was reminded of a Time Magazine article from a few years ago that really struck me.  I handed the article off to my colleague Lara Baldwin who also had some of my similar thoughts on the matter I thought I’d share them with you:

 

Childhood obesity is a hot topic these days, and it seems that…

4 simple ways to educate your customers about what you sell

2-3 times a week I make the trip a few hundred feet from my office to Katzingers Deli for my lunch. The deli is an Ohio Landmark steeped in history and for my two cents serves up the best sandwiches in town.



What sets Katzingers apart from the competition (aside from their great food) is how they market the business internally. Here are just a few things they… Continue

Summer cooking camps for children taught by local chefs

The benefits of enrolling your child, the one with an interest in food,

in a summer cooking camp is immeasurable. The kids that attend summer

cooking camps end up enhancing their math and reading skills without

even knowing they are doing so. They learn about other cultures and

their foods. The children that attend summer cooking camps come back

home with a skill set that lets them help with family meals. The

children who attend summer cooking camps learn about… Continue

We've Failed: "Increase Revenue"

Have we failed as a society that values entrepreneurship, out-of-the-box thinking, business savvy-ness and capitalism?



Today I "beat the street". No, not Wall Street. I hoofed a significant number of blocks in my local community visiting small businesses to introduce myself. One of the questions I posed to each business asked if the owners would be interested in increasing their revenue.



When I asked this question of front-line staff at businesses the owner wasn't present… Continue

How to engage your servers

It's time you gave Youtube and basic video editing programs a second look. Both are powerful tools that should be a part of your FOH operations. You think it's too hard to make a video, too time consuming, too expensive? Think again. Video's never been easier to make. Just look at Youtube. Anyone can do this.



Why should you care?



Well, at any given restaurant, there are servers with varying degrees of commitment, experience, and ability representing your brand. There are… Continue

Beyond Voting: Government is Everyone's Every Day Responsibility

Hello FohBoh, it's been a while.



It's really been an incredible and exciting year on so many levels it defies description. For me, one of the most important developments was the financial collapse on Wall Street and the subsequent outrage by the American People.



I think this year, our electorate has been energized like never before with the potential candidacy of Hillary Clinton and the candidacies of "celebrity" politicians like Barack Obama and Sarah Palin. And for those… Continue

Success: It's simpler than you think.

Currently I'm in graduate school. These days I spend a lot of time reading chapters, pouring over case studies and working on presentations with fellow students. It's all good stuff that helps me hone skills I already have and aids me in the development of new ones as well. Perhaps my career will progress as a result too.



But I also know that lectures and homework assignments have their limits. There are many things in business and life that you just can't learn within the walls of… Continue

Chef to Cook Advice

I had an important talk with a cook the other day. What struck me the most was that she has probably never heard what I had to say from anyone else.



For the last few years I have been writing about my industry here at Eggbeater. In some ways I have made guesses based on previous experience, current experiences and what other cooks and chefs have told me the last few years. But it was not until I began…

Losing it in 2008

Reprinted from TRN Janury 2008

Trying to write this column for the January issue I had the choice to look back and reflect on 2007 or look forward to 2008. The past cannot be changed no matter how much we would like to, so I guess the choice is look forward with the knowledge of the past as a guidepost.

Why can't our children cook?

Is it me, or are we creating a generation of children who don't know how to cook?



When I was 10 part of the curriculum featured an hour's lesson called Home Economics.



It was taught in a fully equipped teaching kitchen, every pupil had their own sink, prep area and oven. Every week we learned how to cook, from the basics of a white sauce to preparing a 3 course meal. We learned about food hygiene, nutrition and traditional cooking methods.



Home Economics was not an… Continue

TED TALKS VIDEO

TED: Jennifer Senior: For parents, happiness is a very high bar - Jennifer Senior (2014)

The parenting section of the bookstore is overwhelming—it's "a giant, candy-colored monument to our collective panic," as writer Jennifer Senior puts it. Why is parenthood filled with so much anxiety? Because the goal of modern, middle-class parents—to raise happy children—is so elusive. In this honest talk, she offers some kinder and more achievable aims.

TED: David Brooks: Should you live for your résumé ... or your eulogy? - David Brooks (2014)

Within each of us are two selves, suggests David Brooks in this meditative short talk: the self who craves success, who builds a résumé, and the self who seeks connection, community, love -- the values that make for a great eulogy. (Joseph Soloveitchik has called these selves "Adam I" and "Adam II.") Brooks asks: Can we balance these two selves?

TED: David Sengeh: The sore problem of prosthetic limbs - David Sengeh (2014)

What drove David Sengeh to create a more comfortable prosthetic limb? He grew up in Sierra Leone, and too many of the people he loves are missing limbs after the brutal civil war there. When he noticed that people who had prosthetics weren’t actually wearing them, the TED Fellow set out to discover why — and to solve the problem with his team from the MIT Media Lab.

TED: Louie Schwartzberg: Hidden miracles of the natural world - Louie Schwartzberg (2014)

We live in a world of unseeable beauty, so subtle and delicate that it is imperceptible to the human eye. To bring this invisible world to light, filmmaker Louie Schwartzberg bends the boundaries of time and space with high-speed cameras, time lapses and microscopes. At TED2014, he shares highlights from his latest project, a 3D film titled "Mysteries of the Unseen World," which slows down, speeds up, and magnifies the astonishing wonders of nature.
