The Politics of Food

Play

10 am

Dinner can seem like a private affair, but we dine at every meal with a host of politicians and policy-makers. This hour we’ll explore the laws and labels that determine the health of our nation. We’ll take a look at Michelle Obama’s advocacy for nutritious school lunches, and those who say the government’s hand is too heavy when it comes to food policy.

Guests

  • Dr. Marion Nestle, professor of nutrition, food Studies, and public health at NYU
  • Claire Benjamin, managing director for Food Policy Action
  • Parke Wilde, professor at the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy at Tufts University
