We're pleased to feature Hope, a lifelong resident of Prince George's County, Maryland who found a second career teaching FCS and is now an author.
“I saw a lot of children and young adults eating ‘brown’ foods such as fries, mozzarella sticks, hamburgers, etc.,” she explains. Wanting to help children develop good eating habits at an early age, she offers her new book, “What Colors Did You Eat Today?” (published by Trafford Publishing). “The message is simple,” Lee says, “the more colors you see on your plate, the more health benefits you will get.”
