There are 5,999 likes on this page in facebook, and 35 people talking about the articles and videos posted here. Of the pages that discussed children's nutrition, specifically, there was not any other facebook page that had more than 100 likes. Parents Magazine had 636,871 likes and 22,773 talking about it, so it isn't as though facebook is not a tool for parent networking and ideas.
