Caterpillars, Binge Eating, and the Anti-Obesity Campaign

Earlier this week, on the first day of spring, thousands of pediatricians' offices received free copies of Eric Carle's classic, The Very Hungry Caterpillar. These books will be accompanied by growing charts and reading guides to help foster discussion with children about healthy eating habits and fight the childhood obesity epidemic. See what Bill Clinton and Eric Carle have to say about this new campaign.
