Adelle Davis, who is affectionately remembered as the First Lady of Nutrition, said it best:
"We are indeed much more than what we eat, but what we eat can nevertheless help us to be much more than what we are."
"Project Lunchbox: Let's Eat!" stands strong in the conviction that nutritional education, guidelines, and research should be accessible. This is achieved by capturing the essence of nutritional information and then disseminating this information in an engaging and thought-provoking manner.
Educating families about where their food comes from, how to read ingredient labels, and why the processed food industry informs such a large part of the American food culture.
Debunking food myths, inspiring informed food choices, and instilling in families the belief that they are capable of igniting change within the global food system: through their united voices and their collective wallets.
After transitioning my Girl Scout Gold Award to an entrepreneurial pursuit in June of 2013, I have continued to fulfill its mission of educating families about the link between healthy eating and positive school performance. As the reach of the business has expanded, the venues in which I communicate my message of nutrition as an agent for disease prevention as well as a mechanism for consumer advocacy and awareness have also grown.
