Whether you're one year old or 101, it’s always important to eat healthy. To help keep the kid in all of us feeling great, we asked Molly Peppo Brown from Ketchum’s Glow Live Food Cafe to pass along a few favorite simple summer “Kid Treats” recipes. Molly believes that by introducing kids to whole foods early on, engaging in farm visits locally, where kids can eat food right from the source, growing home gardens and blending a leaf or two of kale into delicious fruit smoothies, kids can develop wholesome healthy tastes that will last a lifetime.
