Pea Pointers by Melanie Silverman

I have teamed up with Peas of Mind (Healthy Food For Kids) to provide monthly tips and tricks to get kids eating right. Jill, the Founder and CEO is an absolute delight and is a mom herself who understands why nutrition is so important for growing kids.

I’ll make sure to post the tips on my blog. And that first tip will address the issue of kids eating way too many of those prehistoric animal shaped chicken pieces for lunches and dinners.

Here is the Peas of Mind website for more information:

Thank you Jill Litwin!
