Our children are our future, yet this next generation is projected to be the first to have a shorter life expectancy than their parents. What if we provided children in a failed food system with the same sense of urgency as banks in a failed financial system? What if the feds worked to get the Ã¢â‚¬Å“toxic assetsÃ¢â‚¬Â of junk foods off of the ledger sheets of struggling neighborhoods? Unlike with the financial system, the investment opportunities for children are clear: quality grocery stores, urban gardens, farmers markets, and fresh and healthy school foods. The returns will far exceed financial expectations.
