Advance registration is required by calling Stepping Stones at (203) 899-0606, ext. 299, by April 25. The museum is located at 303 West Avenue in Norwalk.
The award-winning documentary tells the story of two mothers’ yearlong crusade to change their children’s school lunch menus while documenting the roles that government, corporate interests, school boards, and parents play in feeding the nation’s children. One third of American students are overweight or obese, putting them at risk for diabetes, heart problems and other illness.
Siclare, a licensed nutritionist who serves on the Ridgefield (CT) School District Wellness Committee, is featured in the film for her professional opinion about children and diet.
The screening is sponsored by Whole Foods Market in Darien and includes a free healthy dinner for children and parents, free childcare for children of walking-age, and lots of fun activities!
