Art Rolling In

Eating Right - the Vandal Way
For Laura Thomas, healthy food can be served any place at any time. Whether it’s on a soccer field, on the go or on a kitchen table – she said healthy meals should be available to all families.
Thomas, a University of Idaho alumna, ’83 ’95, is a registered dietitian and healthy lifestyle enthusiast. She has teamed up with fellow Vandal Lisa Medrow ’96 to promote the Kids Eat Right program. The program is a joint initiative from the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and its foundation's 74,000 members to ensure childhood obesity efforts include a focus on quality nutrition for all.
