Cathal Armstrong is a celebrity chef at Restaurant Eve in Alexandria, Va., and a fellow-crusader in the effort to teach kids good health through healthy eating. They join Kojo to discuss how schools can encourage kids to skip the french fries and reach for the fresh fruit.

Chez Panisse executive chef and sustainable food activist Alice Waters discusses ways that schools can prepare healthy meals and get kids excited about eating them.

And when you bring kids around the table and they eat together and they eat something that's good, they feel like they're being taken care of," Waters said.
