What keeps you from eating what you know you should? It it just easier, more convenient, quicker? Or is it really almost impossible to find fresh foods near where you live and at a price you can afford.
Is it the fact that you eat out more than you used to? And not just at white-tablecloth restaurants but at fast-food places where you just need to feed your weary face or keep your kids from fainting after soccer practice.
These barriers and others are recognized as part of the reason that Jefferson County residents (and many others across the country) have a hard time following the advice we learned in health class or from our parents, that we should eat more fresh fruits and vegetables in our diets.
A number of great organizations are coming together to tackle these issues by creating a Food Policy Council and this week’s Food Summit is your chance to have input to their planning. You can do lots of other things too during this two-day event, starting Nov. 12 at the Avon Theater.
