Welcome to Nutrition Talks
The more we know about children’s unique nutritional needs the better job we can all do as parents in raising a happy, active, and healthy child.
Nutrition Talks is designed to help us all to make the best decisions possible around our child’s nutritional needs. I wanted its format to be a quick and simple reminder of what we likely already know, without necessarily bogging us down in technical doublespeak that surrounds nutritional space.
Yet for within each Nutrition Talks topic you will see that I have provided a reference resource for those who occasionally would like to do a deeper dive on that topic.
Occasionally you will see that I am hosting an outside expert in what will be called “BONUS Bites.”
So Like, Follow, and Share Feed Our Rural Kids on Facebook and watch for my bi-monthly posts on the first and third Wednesday of each month. Or we will just see you back here at FeedOurRuralKids.org when you are hungry for more knowledge.
