How does one of the wealthiest nations on earth have both a record childhood obesity problem and a record childhood food insecurity problem? It's mind-boggling. It's connected. It's overwhelming. There must be solutions, and food bloggers can help find them.

BlogHer co-founder Lisa Stone sits down with Anna Lappe from Small Planet Institute, Elly Spinweber from Partnership for a Healthier America, Councilwoman and Activist Lea Webb, and Michelle Berger Marshall from Feeding America to explore the connection between food insecurity and childhood obesity in America, where the solutions to both may be, and how we as bloggers can help change the future of America's vulnerable youth.
