Even the shipping facility in Michigan will not move, since that location is perfect for speedy shipping across the United States.

So what is changing?

The home address of Food and Health Communications will now be…

The top article, 15 Ways to Help Kids Love Healthful Foods, features the journey that Judy took with her own son.

This plan will help families end battles at the dinner table and turn dinner from a chore into a place for precious family memories. Readers will be delighted to gain great ideas like discovering and growing herbs with children, slipping fruit platters in front of video game players, and setting a better table, sometimes even in the child’s room!

Everyone will delight in the tips and tricks included in the article, What’s Your Cooking Style?. Identifying a child’s passions and interests will help build a family into a great cooking team.

She is also the author of No Battles, Better Eating, a book about how to engage kids in many fun culinary projects. She advocates joy at every family meal. Judy is a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY.
