Jill Brook of Diet for Health in La Cañada Flintridge made a presentation on nutrition to the class of 2009 Glendale chapter of the National Charity League, Inc., Glendale Chapter. Brook gave the girls her 10 tips for healthy eating and reminded them that eating well is mostly about convenience. If there are good foods in the house, people will eat them. If there is a lot of junk food, the family will eat that instead. The girls capped off the evening with a nutritious potluck dinner and screening of the film "Supersize Me" to further reinforce the theme.

Monday was the start of yet another sweltering summer week. Not many dared to face the heat, opting to stay in their cool, air conditioned homes. But the heat didn’t faze a group gathered at Two Strike Park. Armed with water, protein, and carbohydrates, the 2007 Summer Sports and Fitness Academy for Kids bravely took on the day. The camp, co-sponsored by West Coast Boot Camp and Los Angeles County Parks and Recreation, was unique in that it addressed “issues of obesity in children and the fact that children are not provided with formal physical education from kindergarten through third grade,” said Camp Director Skip McNevin.

Having a "drill sergeant" holler at you at 5:30 in the morning to get moving is without question one sure way to lose weight and tone up ? or else. But this heavy handed method is not always attractive to women who want a solid workout but without the shouting. Adrian Pietrariu, founder of West Coast Boot Camp, understands this hesitation and has partnered with sisters Lisanne Kern and Crista Murray to create a special women's only, six-week session beginning on Monday, June 26. The workouts will begin at 9 a.m. and are being held at the Rose Bowl on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

In searching for information about the human brain, researchers commonly use rats. While studying the effects of various fruit and vegetables on aging rats, scientists made some startling discoveries relative to the field of nutrition. For one early project, in the mid-'90s, three groups of aging rats were studied. The first group of rats ate their usual grain diet. The second group had spinach added and the third ate a diet enriched with blueberries. Rats can swim, but they dislike water.

Tuesday marked the beginning of La Cañada Elementary School’s first-ever Nutrition Week, a schoolwide effort to teach students how to take care of their bodies through what they consume and why proper nutrition is so essential to their overall health. The idea for Nutrition Week came from a group of parents who are passionate and knowledgable about healthy eating and wanted to bring the message of better eating to the entire campus. Dr. Annette Langer-Gould and Chieko Masciandaro are co-chairing the La Cañada Elementary PTA-sponsored event.

La Cañada High School students returning from winter break in January saw some changes in the school menu. Former a la carte items such as churros and funnel cakes; as well as Snapple drinks and Coca-Cola Vitamin Water were removed from the menu because they did not meet the new, more stringent standards imposed by the new state laws. Gatorade remains on the menu because it classifies as an electrolyte replacement beverage. According to dietitian Emily Burson, of Sodexo, the district’s food service consultant, Senate Bill 12 regulates what can be sold a la carte according to fat, sugar and calorie content; and individually-sold entrees must qualify under the federal meal program, be 400 calories or less and contain 4 grams or less of fat per 100 calories.

Girl Scout Troop 802 , a fifth grade troop at Palm Crest Elementary, recently participated in the "Kids on the Run" children's health and fitness fair sponsored by Childrens Hospital. The girls ran three booths at Griffith Park on Jan. 28 that featured different activities they created to teach children a few examples of how to live an active and healthy life. The girls are pursuing their Bronze Award, the highest award a Junior Girl Scout can earn. One of the requirements is undertaking a project that shows the girls understand and live by the Girl Scout Promise and Law. One booth was called "Tic-Tac Exercise," and it invited children to play "Tic-Tac-Toe" by placing an X or an O on one of nine different sheets of paper.

Lunch is being done differently in the La Cañada Unified School District this year. La Cañada Unified replaced food-service company Sodexo Inc., which has held the contract for the district's lunch program for the past five years, with School Nutrition Plus to prepare lunches for its four school cafeterias. When Sodexo's contract expired, the district published a request for bids from other companies, as it is required to do every five years, said Mike Leininger, the district's assistant superintendent of facilities and operations.
