The nation’s obesity rates have never been higher, and the epidemic isn’t limited to adults: children are affected, too. But some bloggers are out to change not only how kids think about food, but also what they’re eating. Elaine Wu, from Virgo Blue (and BlogHer) moderates a discussion with Diana Johnson (aka DianasaurDishes) who is pulling a Jamie Oliver in her own community and Laura Sampson from Hey, What's For Dinner Mom?...who helps parents strategize on how to get their kids to eat more healthfully. Finally, this panel will feature Mrs. Q from Fed Up With School Lunch, the anonymous school employee who is documenting what it's like to eat just what the kids eat every single day for a year.
