Thanks Ani for all of the links! I went and signed Jamie's petition (I got gotten an email about it before but had not gotten around to checking out what it said) and I will definitely check out Food Matters. I am a vegetarian and I didn't think I could stomach Food Inc., I have Food matters in my Netflix queue but I didn't know when I would get around to watching it because I hadn't read what it was about. Now I will watch it sooner rather than later.

Hey kandi, here's a web page with lots of breakfast suggestions and other good information about cereals.
Some of these suggestions can be made a day before or even longer before so all you have to do is serve it up.

Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it’s a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they’re terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul

Actually, it's a different take than Food Inc. Some subjects certainly cross over but this one focuses on how our bodies use food and how the drugs/surgery model currently in place (BIG TIME!) isn't addressing underlying health issues. It really presses the point home that when given the right nutritional elements from food our bodies will almost always cure themselves from diseases that are diet/life-style related...which is just about every chronic disease the people are suffering from today.
For anyone who is even a little interested in getting healthy and staying healthy this film is a must see.
What you eat matters!

I haven't watched Food Matters but I watched Food, Inc. I suppose it is a similar concept. I guess buying local and organic whenever possible is the way to go.

Thank you for sharing and for the comments

Sign Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution and sign the petition going to the UN Summit 2011 where they will be discussing Non Communicable Diseases--all diet and life-style diseases.

On the website where you can sign it says:"Jamie is asking for people all across the world to join the Food Revolution and help get countries and global leaders to work together and improve education & legislation in order to reduce the number of deaths from NCDs and obesity related diseases".

Watch "Food Matters" and you will really learn a lot about what has happened to our food and our health--it's mind boggling!! Right now you can watch it for free starting in October or you can watch it right now on NetFlix. Really good movie.

Ahhhh...NJ has cut head start, pre-k and kindergarten funding and a bunch of other programs and jobs. They just let 105 Trenton police go today. I can keep going in there putting in complaints, but I don't see anything changing as long as we have this Governor. And to write a letter a week to the Governor is pointless. I believe in balancing the budget, but not hurting our kids and working families in the process...but hey, that's the World we live in today.

I follow Tosca Reno on Twitter and she tweeted this today..."My friend lost her niece today - cancer, 20 yrs old. Not right. Not fair. Our food needs to be clean and safe." It's really sad.

I do hope you and other parents will speak up, nice and loud, about the school food. This has got to change.

I will looking into the cereals mentioned. I haven't even eaten cereal in a very very long time and when I did was eating Honey Combs. Ha! I have no clue what's out there. The cereal aisle is enormous. To go through ever box...

How about Nature's Path cereals or Kashi?
I have been making grain free granola. It's in the team cookbook

If you don't have steviva you could just use some extra honey or some stevia drops... or even some brown sugar. Just 1 tbsp.

Look into Kashi & Cascadian Farms. Walmart carries some of their flavors.

Cold cereal, even if organic is still a junky way to start the day for anybody. Maybe when you get some free time you could make a batch of homemade granola that would be there for those rushed mornings.

There are so many things you could feed her that are quick and nutritious. Glad to know you want to keep her from eating school food.

Even organic whole wheat toast with organic peanut butter is quick and healthy. Or a smoothie with yogurt and fruit. My son used to love it when I soft-boiled an egg and mixed it in a bowl with cut up pieces of whole grain toast. The toast would soak up that runny yolk and it was really yummy with a little salt and pepper. I fed that to the boy I baby sat for many years--it was his favorite.

Or melted cheese on toast too is usually welcome by kids.

...looking for a cereal to give to my little on (going to turn 4 in November) to eat for breakfast before school. Her first day is on this coming Wednesday. For those days where I'm falling behind I need something quick. I don't want her to eat school food. My grandmother has fed her Whole Grain Total one days and she seems to like that, but I'm looking for something preferably organic (if there is such a thing) that is close to natural as possible. Anybody have any ideas?
