Top Food Issues

Marion Nestle's top food issues for the year are very interesting. See: Hot food issues ready to boil over this year for the full list. I'm most interested in her predictions and questions about
  • Hunger: "Will Congress do anything this year to strengthen the safety net for the poor? It needs to."
  • Food safety regulation: again, Congress is waiting to act, but may put in stronger regulations.
  • Food advertising and labels: will there be better front of package labels? Regulation of ads aimed at kids?
  • Dietary guidelines: a new version of the government list will be published this year.

I need to read this article. Right now, though, I need to go to bed. Sigh.

Marion Nestle writes a lot of good stuff, also in the Atlantic online food blog.
