Some exciting changes are happening in 2013! Betty is turning her attention and talents in healthy meal-planning to one of the biggest challenges facing us today: children's health and nutrition. Betty has aligned herself with Cooking with Kids Foundation and Healthy Food in Schools to help bring nutrition information, demos, and new habits to children and their families in El Dorado County.
Betty Albert wants to forward children's knowledge about nutrition and its effects and build interest in good nutrition. Albert sees reaching kids about nutrition is pivotal to improving their health for their entire lives. "Children have learned not to eat vegetables...I want to show them that fresh food can be delicious and can make them feel good". She considers reaching children to be "ground zero" in turning around such chronic health issues as obesity and high blood pressure.
At 74 (and defiantly wagging a finger at age), Albert has been passionate about food since a doctor cured a skin ailment when she was in her 20s by removing dairy from her diet. It started a lifelong fascination with how food and herbs affect our health...and it is a passion she is now sharing with children through demonstrations, classes and instructional settings.

The BEST way to avail yourself, your school, and family of our services is to call or email and tell Health Nut Betty about your heart's desires for quality nutrition and well being.
