FoodieTots — “Raising Foodies on Real Food” — is a resource for families trying to get fresh, healthy meals on the table in today’s busy world. With an emphasis on food from the farmers market, the CSA or the garden, FoodieTots shares recipes and resources to make eating healthy simple and fun for the whole family. FoodieTots also features recipes for getting kids into the kitchen, as kids who cook are more likely to eat a varied diet and maintain a lifelong interest in eating well.
