It wasn't until after the births of my son and daughter that I became increasingly aware of how difficult it was to teach children how to eat healthy in a very unhealthy world of processed, sugar laden and artificially coloured foods. I was becoming even more aware of how challenging it was to find enough time to prepare healthy meals and snacks with our busy family schedule.
I recently had the opportunity to make a rare work trip to Huntington, West Virginia. Since Pittsburgh is only a five-hour drive away from Huntington, I assumed that it had similar characteristics to my hometown, technically the largest city in Appalachia. While our accents were different, the warmth of the people in Huntington was definitely not.
