While much of the programming I develop is directed toward adults, I also enjoy sharing information with children of all ages. Nothing pleases me more than sharing nutrition information with a young person and then meeting up with them again and have them say, "Hey, I remember you; you told us to eat more vegetables, or less pop, or whole grains..." Encouraging people of all ages to make healthy food choices is becoming a huge part of my job and I love it!
