So the Brooklyn Food Conference was great. Lots of people came by and I’m gearing up to do free consultations with 40 people!

I shared a table with Stacie and Michelle from Stacie and Michelle are two awesome ladies who are working to spread the word that our kids don’t need to be given special “kid” food to eat, a la chicken fingers and day-glo yogurt, but that they can and will enjoy the same healthy food as their parents if given half a chance to eat it. I highly recommend their blog,, which contains loads of kid-friendly recipes and family food tips. Be sure to check it out.

Come to the Brooklyn Food Conference!
