An Op-Ed by Harlan Coben in the New York Times this week railed agaist what he calls "Snack Tyranny"  and points out that any exercise benefit a child gains by soccer is wiped out by Ding Dongs. 

Excellent point.

    "Please give special thanks to Chef Roberto Del Grande.   For first time, just a few minutes after Mr.Del Grande started to talk, my student Maria Chavez openly interacted with him.  Usually Maria is very shy and I could not find--until that moment--the way to motivate her.
    It was amazing to see her participating and enjoying the class. As an educator I appreciate the tremendous impact that Mr. Del Grande has made in the heart of all my children but especially Maria’s."
   Thanks, Sandra Garza
See Maria below interacting with Chef Robert
