About The New (Ab)normal

The great American road trip is an essential part of most summers. And it wouldn't be complete without stopping off for a bite to eat along the way. But, not only are healthy options on the highway often hard to find, the amount of food we're served has gotten a lot bigger.

Even off the highway, in our very own communities, it's not always easy to find healthy, smaller-sized meals. Servings everywhere have grown, along with our waistlines.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and its partners have tips on how we can make healthier options more available in our community. Big portion sizes have become the new abnormal, and it's time to scale back.

The quiz widget for the New AbNormal is contained in an iFrame, which can be difficult to embed for those who use WordPress and do not host their own database or do not have administrator privileges on their site. If you're have difficulty embedding the widget, support can be found here: http://wordpress.org/tags/iframe

This is just a hook for the jQuery to move the share button.
