Childhood obesity is on the rise, leading to a number of medical problems. Pat McConahay takes a look at this growing phenomenon, as a well as a unique school lunch program designed to encourage healthy, low-fat eating.

  Nutrition Confusion
If you keep current with news reports you've probably discovered some mixed messages. It often seems like what's good for you this week was bad for you last. The Heartland staff attempts to clear up part of the controversy over what's healthy to eat.
  Pork Profile
Pork is not only versatile, but it also is becoming leaner and therefore a healthier meat alternative. Heartland visits with a Sacramento County pig farmer and a nutritionist to find out why eating pork no longer makes you a "porker." Marinated Pork Tenderloin Recipe.
  Earthbound Farm
Pat spent the day at Earthbound Farm and discovered why it's the largest organic produce farming operation in all of North America.
They may be small in size, but they're big in flavor. What are they? Blueberries! And Allison found a farm where they've been growing these sweet treats for over fifty years. Now that we know where to find the blueberries, why not whip up a delicious blueberry pie? We have a recipe that's guaranteed to delight. Blueberry Pie Recipe.
