Help a Mom: Do you have questions about the food your family eats?

Posted September 17, 2013

Our own Lynda Loveland is moderating The Food Dialogues: North Carolina, a free program in Raleigh on Thursday that will explore where our food comes from and what's on our plates.

Two sets of panelists will answer questions dealing with everything from the use of antibiotics to genetically modified foods on the farm. It's 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., Thursday, at the Raleigh Convention Center. Tickets are free, but you have to register. Click here for more information. If you can't attend, you can watch the event live online.

Lynda, a mom of three, as Go Ask Mom readers know, who grew up on a farm, has questions of her own. But she also wants to hear from other moms about their questions and concerns about food. Panelists will talk about everything from hormones and antibiotics to organics and GMOs, but Lynda knows there are other questions that parents might have on the subject. 

"I wanted to make sure I'm addressing all the hot topics," she tells me.

So today, the mom that we're helping is Lynda. And she wants to know what questions you have about the food you serve your family? 

Do you have questions that you'd like Lynda to pose at Thursday's event? Please share in the comments box below. (If you don't see the comments box below, you'll need to log in or sign up for a WRAL account. You can do that by going to the top of the page and clicking on either "log in" or "register").

Help a Mom features questions from readers every Wednesday. If you have a question that you'd like to ask Go Ask Mom readers, click here to email it to me.

    How can I tell if the fresh fruits and vegetables I buy came from genetically modified plants?

    How can I tell/avoid ground beef that contains "pink slime" - lean finely textured beef (LFTB)or boneless lean beef trimmings (BLBT)

    The amount of cartilage I'm finding in ground meat products is leaning me towards purchasing my own meat grinder to make hamburger and sausage.

    How can I cut down on sugar and sugary foods without my kids feeling deprived of the "normal" foods that most kids like to eat?

    How bad are processed foods for kids (hamburger helper, mac and cheese etc)?
