Health class

we watched Jamie Oliver Food Revolution. scary stuff going on out there in the schools.
Every time I pick up my 1/2 pint, I just cringe at how thin he is. A good gust of wind would just blow him into the next county. I checked the CDC and he is 2 lbs into the healthy list, WHO, reaffirms that he is not going to blow away with the next wind but it still just makes me uneasy. Yes, I am not happy unless I have 38 things to worry about, so this is number 18. He eats to live, not lives to eat, so that is a good thing. He does go down to the kitchen to eat, not mindlessly stuffs his face while he is glued to the TV. He does make some fairly healthy choices, milk and dairy, followed by fruits and then 'some' proteins and 'veggies'. His dad reassures me that whole wheat bread has some protein in it, but I am reluctant to agree.
