Even the river is filled with melted chocolate. It is a place that every child’s candy is within reach.
But the kids that eat, and eat, and eat every sweet they pass end up with a problem and are eliminated from the contest. The only boy left is the one with self control who follows the directions. Now imagine being your child and going through every aisle in a grocery store and seeing all of the colorful and fun looking foods.

The Struggle To Keep Our Children Lean And Healthy

In addition to providing new insight into the biological mechanisms surrounding sleep, Landolt’s work may someday lead to new treatments for insomnia and other sleep disorders.Read on …
