Sam Kass and Jocelyn Frye on the radio.

All Things Considered host Michele Norris reported on yesterday’s Healthy Kids Fair for NPR.  While she was there, esophagitis she landed an interview with Jocelyn Frye, Director of Policy and Projects for the First Lady, and Sam Kass, Assistant Chef and Food Initiative Coordinator.  They discussed efforts underway and offered a glimpse of what is on the horizon.

One of many takeaways:

“Nobody is telling people what to eat, or saying you can’t eat certain things. It’s more that we really want to have a conversation about children’s health.” — Jocelyn Frye
