National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month

One in 3 children in the United States are overweight or obese. Childhood obesity puts kids at risk for health problems that were once seen only in adults, like type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart disease. The good news is that childhood obesity can be prevented. In honor of National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month, we encourage your family to make healthy changes together. Get active outside: Walk around the neighborhood, go on a bike ride, or play basketball at the park. Limit screen time: Keep screen time to 2 hours or less a day. Make healthy meals: Buy and serve more vegetables, fruits, and whole-grain foods. Taking small steps as a family can help your child stay at a healthy weight.

Lemon-Herb Roasted Chicken Legs 
(Recipe by Chef Marcela Valladolid Rodriguez)


  • ½ cup olive oil, plus more for greasing
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped parsley
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped rosemary
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped thyme
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh oregano
  • 1 tablespoon mustard powder
  • 3 teaspoons garlic powder1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • ¼ cup freshly squeezed lemon juice, plus 5 tablespoons
  • Kosher salt, to taste
  • Fresh ground pepper, to taste
  • 2 ½ pounds chicken legs, with skin
  • ​3 tablespoons white vinegar


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil and set aside. In a large bowl combine olive oil, herbs, mustard, garlic powder, lemon zest, and lemon juice. Toss chicken legs in marinade. Make sure chicken legs are evenly coated with herb mix. Season generously with salt and pepper. Place in a Ziploc bag and refrigerate for about an hour. Chicken legs can also be refrigerated overnight and cooked the next day. Drizzle olive oil on lined baking sheet. Place chicken legs on baking sheet, making sure they do not overlap one another. Bake for about 30-45 minutes or until completely cooked. Skin will begin to turn golden brown. Halfway through baking turn each leg over so each side of the chicken legs gets crispy.

In a small bowl combine remaining lemon juice, vinegar, generous amount of pepper and salt. This will serve as a dressing for chicken legs. Remove from heat when done cooking and serve.
