I agree that parents have a big role in helping their children develop healthy lifestyles. But kids only spend part of their day with their parents. And parents aren't perfect either. They need help.
They need schools that provide their children with healthy choices, healthy foods and healthy activities ... such as inline skating.
And we need a government that supports this, which it can do, in part, by continuing to fund PEP grants and by continuing to support the fund that provides money for the development of parks and trails.
I agree with Tahiti girl: "Thank goodness there are some practical thinking folks on that subcommittee."
