An Apple a Day Might do More than Just Keep the Doctor Away by Cindy Weinberger MS, RD, CDN 84

Dear Editor, I want to commend you on a most inspiring article on Ms. Orly Wahba and her mission to propagate kindness throughout the world.

When you give and share happiness, you end up gaining in return. A Reader Dear Editor, This is to address the anonymous dad who was concerned that 13 days off from school and camp was spoiling his children. I have news for you, Mr. Dad. There were many, many families in our neighborhood whose children enjoyed the parks, the backyards, the beaches and their friends during those two weeks.
