What are these Canadian kids eating for breakfast that is making them so strong? That is precisely what twleve year old Rachel Parent wants to know after completing her science research project. Why does shes want to know? Simple, so she can choose.
Rachel also wants to see the research and wants to make sure proper, independent science confirms without a doubt that what she is eating is healthy for her, and for her future, i.e. the world she will inherit.
