CELEBRATE THE REUNION

MIKE AND IKE® are back together with a cool new look and enhanced flavors.

 



What makes us fat: Is it eating too much or moving too little?
NPR
We're constantly hearing messages that we're eating too much and not moving around enough. Now researchers suggest that we're actually not eating more than we did 20 years ago, it's that we're much less active. And that includes not just middle-aged workers tied to their desks, but also young men and women who spend their days sitting in front of their laptops.

Removing vending machines from schools may increase soda, fast food consumption
University Herald
Banning vending machines form schools may not be enough to reduce soda and fast food consumption among students, according to a recent study. Researchers from the University of Illinois at Chicago found that 23 percent of students reported drinking at least one soda per day if they had access to vending machines in schools, compared to 28 percent of students who did not have access. This finding suggests that removing vending machines is the only school food policy change implemented, it may increase sodas consumption.
