FINALLY! A Nutrition text that gets it RIGHT!

Introducing Real Food Nutrition FOR KIDS!

Do you want:

  • To teach your younger children about Real Food?
  • To use child-friendly lessons inspired by the same love of wholesome, traditional foods that you find in the cookbook Nourishing Traditions, the work of Weston A. Price, the Slow Food movement, and farmer’s markets everywhere?
  • To avoid the twaddle put out by the USDA which features their sub-par Nutrition standards?
  • A beautiful book full of fun illustrations, coloring pages, and activities for younger children?

Now you can breathe a sigh of relief. You’ve finally found what you’re looking for.

I’m a homeschooling mother who adores the “living books” model of education promoted by Charlotte Mason. And I’m a holistic nutrition coach who “geeks out” when reading science that reinforces what I believe about nourishing, traditional food ways. And I’m a professional writer who not only writes for small business owners and non-profits to help them better represent themselves, their product, and their services to the public, but I also blog endlessly about all things Real Food at www.foodrenegade.com. Over the course of the past year, I’ve combined these three passions to create the first and only Nutrition curriculum of this kind.
