Richard Hentschel talks with Laura Barr about current USDA guidelines for healthy eating and some of the simple ways we can be sure families are eating healthy right out of our garden and from the Farmers Markets. Richard and Laura discuss the Food Groups and those messages USDA wants us to remember as we prepare meals. Laura stressed the need to eat a variety of different colored vegetables.
