It really is all about preparing our kids to
THRIVE in their futures!

With our long personal histories and habits related to our food choices, it can be challenging enough to make the decision to go whole food plant-based, even when we know the massive amount of scientific evidence confirming it’s the healthiest diet for our bodies. But when it comes to moving children to this way of eating, the challenge can seem, at times, overwhelming. Between their developing minds, peer pressure, massive industry marketing budgets trying to lure them into life long self-destruction for profit, it can be easy to throw up our hands. But it’s OUR KIDS! And sometimes the greatest obstacle of all is our own fear. No matter what your circumstance, you are NOT ALONE!!! These resources will help!
