As a clinical social worker, educator, and parent, I am passionate in helping schools to build strong nutrition programs that nurture children’s cognitive, emotional, and physical development.
To ensure that our children grow up with healthy bodies and minds, it is crucial that we teach them healthy habits from a young age, allowing them to cultivate naturally positive relationships with food.
I have most recently joined forces with Sinai Temple Preschool to implement a school wide nutrition program. Through this unique collaboration we have:
- Created a step by step action plan for a healthy school
Created a healthy snack program that is provided to all children
Reformed school policies to reflect research-driven recommendations
Integrated physical education, nutrition, and gardening into the existing curriculum
Educated staff and parents on current research, guidelines, and strategies for keeping kids healthy at home and in school
My vision is to help schools throughout Los Angeles become part of the initiative to nourish our children from the inside out.
