How do you bring healthy eating to the school cafeteria? A researcher from Harvard’s School of Public Health talks about some fascinating new findings that may offer real answers - at a time when one in three American children is overweight or obese.

Plus, we hear from a chef about his shift from high-end restaurants to public school lunchrooms -  and the surprising challenges he faced.
