Better living through better nutrition with Olympic Athlete Garrett Weber-Gale

Friday, March 19, 2010

Getting picked up on The New York Times is pretty cool. That's just what happened the other day when Garrett Weber-Gale wrote about food, nutrition and healthy eating on his blog. Check out this commentary from NYT writer Stuart Elliott. Garrett wrote a fair and balanced critique of the recent McDonald's TV spots featuring Chicken McNuggets and implying that nuggets were there food choice of Olympic athletes. He does make the rare trip to the arches but took exception of the basic message in the spots.

Really happy for Garrett that his blogpost got picked up by the NYT! I agree that he presented a reasoned and even-handed argument as to why it was wrong for McDonald's to imply that eating their food is what children should do if they want to become Olympians. Well done, GWG :)
