When you hear the word "healthy eating," what comes to mind?
Replacing everything you love with only fruits and vegetables? Grabbing pre-packaged foods with "Low Fat!," "Nutritious!," "No Sugar Added!"?
Actually, it's all about becoming involved in the planning and preparation of meals and the knowledge gained along the way. When children begin to develop their culinary abilities early on, they open up the doors to a world of options and choices that otherwise would not be a consideration.
Every individual's perception can be a little different when looking at making the change to living a healthier lifestyle by modifying some of our eating habits. But some find this a difficult challenge when you have yet to develop the building blocks necessary to be successful.

Here, Julie shares some of the trade secrets she's learned along her journey in building a proven business model.
