What is Chatfood?

CHATFood is an online resource that provides weekly BuzzFood posts on news stories that get parents and tweens chatting and taking action.

Getting ready to go into middle school is a big step. Tweens become more independent and spend more time with friends. This is an important time for families to have thoughtful, mutually respectful conversations about healthy eating and physical activity.

A simple chat today may lead to healthy habits for a lifetime.
