Linda commented on Less food is the better food

Portion size is the key. The correlation between value for money and portion size needs to change. It is too tempting to get a larger size if that is proportionally better value for money. More restaurants and cafes should offer smaller meals - not selling them as entrees or share plates - but just smaller portions. The 'just enough' serve!

Kids would love to have their own Baymax - their personal health companion.

The robot could provide the children with information about the nutritional value of what the are eating but also more interesting details about how it was produced, what manufacturing it went through, where it travelled from etc. Kids love these details and will learn more about the world and its complex systems as they eat their meals with their own personal health care companion - just like in the movies!

Linda commented on How Refugees Adapt to New Cultures

Fairfield High School in Sydney Australia has a 50% population of refugee children. In 2009 the school began a Breakfast Program and an information support group for parents of the Intensive English Centre called the Parent Cafe. The cafe introduces parents to other support agencies that the government provides to help them find jobs, housing etc. More information here http://www.roads-to-refuge.com.au/refugees-australia/supporting-community-partnerships.html
