Welcome to the 6 Million Seeds Blog!

With 6 Million SEEDS, we are on a mission to change the nutritional landscape for all our children! They are the future, and given what we now know are the primary causes of chronic illnesses, even among children, we cannot afford to let another day go by without making serious changes to what we have been feeding them. We know we have headwinds to fight, but our numbers and support are growing. We are all well-positioned to fight this battle armed with the facts about the healing power of whole plants eaten as close to nature as possible! And we’re in it to win…for all our kids!

Join us on this important journey. And we invite you to engage with us as we take the challenge of empowering our KIDS to fuel their own best lives!!!
