Healthy bodies can mean healthy minds
A recent study that claims homemade lunches often don't measure up to what kids get in the school cafeteria is disturbing. One would think that mom or dad knows best, but apparently too many children across the country are going to school with sack lunches higher in fat and sugar and lacking the fruits and vegetables that provide nutritional value necessary for a healthy meal. The study published in the Journal of Nutrition Education and Behavior says packed lunches aren't meeting the same standards as the National School Lunch Program.

Numerous research has demonstrated the many and interacting factors impacting portion size and food intake. Some eating does occur in response to biological signals, such as hunger, but the majority of eating occurs more in response to psychological factors such as cognitions, hedonics, emotions and our interpretation of our surroundings. This consumption in response to psychological factors tends to result in increased food intake and increased portions sizes.
