In recent years, the disease of childhood obesity in America has tripled and continues to grow. While most parents are aware of the importance of healthy eating, the fight against obesity is a hard battle to win if the kids are not on-board.
My hope is to get kids to work with their parents in changing their eating habits by inspiring them to take on the role and responsibilities of the family chef. Together, parents and children can have a lasting impact on not only their health but on their relationships as well. It is my hope not to just be a voice of healthy eating and family centered cooking, but to create a social-minded brand of fun and delicious gourmet products and services for all ages.
