  • How I became a 'former' city girl

    Prior to my parents moving to Kentucky and eventually New Haven, my experience outdoors consisted of playing in our small yard, riding my bike up and down the sidewalk in front of our house as well as picnicking and hiking in the Metro Parks in Cleveland, Ohio. We would also go on camping trips to Kentucky; that’s when my parents fell in love with this state.

  • Help your children eat healthier

    As with many adults, getting kids to eat healthier is easier said than done. Here are some tips and tricks to help you get your family eating more nutritious foods.

    · Allow children to help with the preparation of meals. When they do, allow them to create fun shapes with food. Children are more likely to eat what they prepare.

    · Add vegetables to existing meals. For example, add lettuce to sandwiches. Add fruits like strawberries, blueberries and bananas to breakfast cereals and oatmeal.
