It’s imperative for kids to grow up seeing nuanced and inspiring role models – both male and female – in their media. The days of male characters taking action and being fully-formed, rounded protagonists, while female characters are relegated to the role of girlfriend, the princess to be rescued, or the token, generic “girl” among a group of individualized boys, should be well behind us, but unfortunately they’re not.

America is hooked on eggs. We use a lot of them in our favorite foods from pancakes to bagels, to cupcakes and cookies. Many of our egg-happy foods are borrowed from the French: soufflés, quiches, omelettes, remoulades, mayonnaise – just to name a few! Yet increasingly, reports of the egg distributing industry reveal the ghastly treatment of mother hens, toxic chemicals in the processing, and generally unhealthy care and feeding of the chickens that lay these ungolden eggs! The entire eggy mess makes the egg one of the more unhealthy foods we can eat, not just for our hearts, but for our souls too!
