How should the Kansas Legislature address the problem of obesity?
Asked at Hy-Vee, 4000 W. Sixth St. on February 2, 2004
“The first thing is to look into what goes into school lunches. A lot of it seems to be high in fat. And maybe try to find incentives for companies to promote foods that are better for us.”
“It’s education. Educate parents and children from the get-go about healthy lifestyles.”
“They could take snack vending machines out of public schools, universities, state buildings, wherever they have the power, and replace it with real food.”
“Start young. Provide healthier food in school lunches. Encourage people to get out and exercise as a community activity. That way you build the community and prevent weight gain.”
