I have been teaching for 20 years and I love what I do!  I believe that proper nutrition is one of the keys to a healthy, fulfilling life.  I share nutrition information that can improve your child's quality of life, including their performance in school.  Knowledge is power and knowing why packaged,processed and GMO foods are destroying our nations health gives students the power to make a change.
