No matter the species, fit and growing youngsters are hungry a lot of the time. According to the Centers for Disease Control and National Center for Health Statistics, the average healthy male infant is expected to double his weight by three months of age. If he follows typical growth charts, then by 15 months, he will have doubled his weight again.

It's that time again! The kids go back to school, which means back to navigating school food. For diet-aware parents, the food can be the most challenging part of the September to June sprint. We look at the school breakfast and lunch menus and dream of a total makeover.

It is August 2022- ALREADY! And with that, many of us start thinking about the change of seasons and the kids returning to school. Even though there are no children in my house now, I've spent my entire life dancing to that rhythm, and I am not expecting the pattern to change anytime soon. So with that as the music in the background, this month, we start looking at what we can do to boost our kids' plant-powered nutrition profiles.
